Criminal Defense Lawyer Representing People in Kenton, Campbell and Boone County

When you are going to battle, it would be nice to know your opponent's battle strategy. The same is true with criminal law: when you are going up against a prosecutor, it's vital to understand how prosecutors think.Criminal Defense Attorney Shannon Sexton defends clients throughout Northern Kentucky

I do. I am criminal defense attorney Shannon D. Sexton. Before I started my own firm defending people facing criminal charges in Northern Kentucky, I worked as a felony prosecutor (known as an Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney) in Jefferson County, Kenton County, and Campbell County, Kentucky. I not only gained valuable trial experience, I understand — inside and out — how prosecutors build a case against a criminal defendant.

Because I know how a case is put together, I know where to look for weaknesses to break it down. I also put my knowledge of establishing a case to work on behalf of my clients; I do not merely defend against what the other side presents, I build a case that defends my clients based on the facts of the situation.

I defend cases in Kentucky Circuit and District Courts and the U.S. District Court.

Our office also provides full legal services, to our clients, in other areas of the law. Learn more about our experience and how we can help you by following the links below.
