Hands down the best law firm in Louisville! 

Hands down the best law firm in Louisville! Steve Klausing worked with us & NEVER let anything slip through the cracks with the details & process of our case. After our first accident was in August of 2017, we finally found Powell Law Firm in May of 2020. Our case finally closed last month, after 3 years. I will always recommend Steve & Scott to anyone & if they can’t help, I know I can trust them to refer me to someone with the same standards.

This man is excellent at his trade.

I was subject to a series of surgeries which were motivated by doctor errors and omissions. My search for a lawyer to handle my case took a few turns, once they decided I had a case, and this guy ended up as my co counsel. To this very day, I remain so impressed. He unfailingly returned my calls over a 3 year period, discussing and offering new details to their approach and mine. He was always pleasant even if I had something ridiculous to ask. He explained everything I asked about - and in detail and extensively. But it was his legal and general, talented acumen I saw most clearly during depositions. His homework was thorough, to say the least. Had my case gone to trial, his rock-solid approach would have given us a marvelous shot at winning. Extremely knowledgeable in medical matters, a quick study as he would put it - but I know better. His standards are incredibly high and his sharp retention and attention to detail have no peers in my experience. Plus, I really like this guy, lol. For someone like me, this matters more than a little bit. I feel wonderfully served by his diligence and the care he lavished on my case. I have no reticence whatsoever in recommending him with my highest possible respect. This man is excellent at his trade.
