A Balanced Approach To Employment Law

We want to make the workplace a better place — for everyone. Most employment lawyers only see one side of the story. We represent employees and employers, which gives us a nuanced and balanced perspective on workplace challenges — and how to best resolve them for our clients.

Based in Lexington, we represent individuals and businesses throughout Kentucky in nearly every aspect of labor and employment law.

For employees, we review and negotiate all types of employment-related contracts, such as employment contracts, severance and separation agreements, non-compete and non-solicitation agreements, and retention agreements. We also pursue wage-and-hour claims on behalf of employees who have been denied minimum or overtime wages.

For employers, we provide compassionate yet proactive, business-minded advice on all issues that arise during the employment lifespan. And when litigation is necessary, we defend employers and management against the following kinds of cases:

  • Employment discrimination claims based on race, sex, gender, national origin, ethnicity, age, and disability;
  • Sexual harassment and hostile work environment claims;
  • Wrongful termination and retaliation claims;
  • Minimum wage, overtime, and other labor law claims; and
  • Breach-of-contract claims relating to employment contracts and noncompete, nonsolicitation, and confidentiality agreements.

Estate Planning & Administration

Estate planning has long been an impersonal transaction

Most people meet with a lawyer they don’t know, sign documents they don’t understand, and file away the documents on a shelf at home, maybe in a safety-deposit box, never to be reviewed again. Only to find that the documents didn’t protect them, their families, or their assets when it mattered most.
There’s a better way. Estate planning isn’t a one-and-done process – laws change, assets change, and family dynamics change. And every estate plan should change with them.
 
But planning isn’t just about the documents, and it isn’t just about assets or financial capital. Yes, avoiding or minimizing taxes and preserving assets for future generations is vitally important. But equally important is preserving and passing on each family’s human, spiritual, and intellectual capital – the very values, principles, and stories that make each family unique.
 
Under our holistic approach to estate planning, we cater plans to the individual needs of each client and each family. We’ll preserve your wealth, protect your assets, and minimize taxes. But we’ll also show you how to use the planning process to bring your family closer together and help you pass on the family legacy.

We Are Here To Serve

Our goal is to be the preeminent, most trusted legal counsel in Kentucky. We work to achieve this goal every day by partnering with our clients to understand their objectives, and vigorously pursuing the best possible outcome as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. Let us show you the Lockaby PLLC difference.
