As former members of the Jefferson County Public Defender’s Office, we have a keen awareness of the issues facing those accused of crimes that face our local criminal justice system.

The hiring of an attorney in a criminal defense matter is possibly the most important decision you will ever make. Cases can be lost without early preparation. It takes time and resources to uncover all the facts and provide for a vigorous defense. The Louisville law firm of Ask Alvarez PLLC understands the consequences when lack of attention or experience come into play in a case.

In the electronic world we live in, the ease of access to your records for such things as future employment purposes means your past can come back to haunt you in the future. We make every effort to get charges eliminated, reduced or eventually expunged from your record, whenever possible, so you can get a fresh start.


Many factors, such as seriousness of the crime, priors, anticipated future conduct, ties to the community and ability to pay are considered by the court. In misdemeanor cases, Release On Recognizance is the goal, but even if you are not eligible we can improve your chances of getting bail reduced. You also need a criminal defense attorney who is up to date on the new laws that are passed in Kentucky.


Examples include Possession of Marijuana, Resisting Arrest, Harassment, Criminal Trespass, Public Intoxication, Criminal Mischief, Terroristic Threatening, Resisting Arrest….among others.

The most important thing to remember in any criminal matter is to get in touch with a qualified criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. It is equally important to have your case pursued by someone genuinely interested in your case and passionate about defending you! We will do both for you!


Our defense work includes those facing felony charges, persistent felony offenders and persons involved in felony probation revocation hearings. Obviously, felonies are serious matters and require our immediate attention. We are prepared to investigate the facts in your case, negotiate with local prosecutors and provide defense through trial, if necessary.


We start by looking at the circumstances and sometimes there are incidents or situations that contributed to the violation that were outside your control or otherwise extraordinary. We help make these known to the court. At revocation hearings, you can either “stipulate” to a violation or ask the Commonwealth to “prove” the violation. If you stipulate and show evidence of remorse, employment, child support, letters of recommendations and other favorable evidence you could get another chance at probation, or a reduced sentence/home incarceration in lieu of revocation. If your probation has already been revoked then shock probation could be the next step. Just don’t give up!


We defend clients in domestic violence cases and in related proceedings. If an EPO is filed against you and the court determines you are, after review, not an immediate threat, you must be given notice and a hearing within 14 days and at that time the court may issue a DVO. However, if you violate the terms you can be arrested without a warrant and face a contempt hearing. Violations of such orders is a Class A Misdemeanor.


Under many circumstances, such as dismissals, misdemeanors, Class D drug possession and others, your criminal record can be sealed. Expunging your records can be the best investment you ever make, greatly improving your chances of advancing your employment opportunities.

This is just a brief summary of the typical cases we encounter, but by no means a complete listing. Since not all the types of cases we handle have been mentioned here, simply give us a call to discuss your situation. Chances are, we can help.
