Sheila's Biography

As a college basketball player who started in two final four appearances, Sheila knows the importance of hard work, drive and heart. Most recently, Sheila served as the president of the Kentucky trial lawyers with the Kentucky Justice Association and has worked tirelessly to fight for injured people for more than 20 years.  This includes several trials with great results for her clients, the last one being in the summer of 2013 where she earned a $743,000 verdict for a client that had lost her sense of taste and smell.  Sheila has devoted herself to helping those who cannot help themselves, and in doing so has been named one of the Top 25 women trial lawyers in Kentucky and has been named a Super Lawyer, a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and has been AV rated by Martindale Hubble.  She has also achieved an AVVO rating of a perfect 10.

When not practicing law, Sheila enjoys spending time with her three children and husband and loves to compete in triathlons and Ironman competitions.
