About This Firm

KENTUCKY LAWYERS SERVING ALL OF KENTUCKY'S EMPLOYEES

When you have been wronged by your employer, you may be upset, angry, afraid and sad, sometimes all at the same time. We know that the vast majority of Kentucky employees are hardworking people who take pride in the quality of their work. To be treated unfairly by an employer or to be wrongfully terminated can be devastating. Furthermore, it can be intimidating to take action against your employer. Most cases of sexual harassment go unreported because employees are afraid to speak up. Let us be your voice.

The attorneys at Abney & McCarty, PLLC have secured millions of dollars for employees throughout Kentucky who have been discriminated against and/or harassed in the workplace. We have successfully represented employees against Fortune 500 companies, as well as state, city and county governments.

At Abney & McCarty, PLLC, we will listen to what happened to you in a free initial consultation, and we know what questions to ask to assess your situation. In some cases, giving you legal and practical advice is all that is required to resolve the problem; in others, we communicate and negotiate with the employer to solve the issues between you. But if necessary, we will not hesitate to protect your rights in court, taking legal action against your employer for discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, retaliation, interference with protected leaves, whistleblowing and other employment law violations.

We do not charge you to meet with us and discuss your issues. Most of our cases are taken on a contingency basis, meaning in those cases that you don't have to pay attorneys' fees unless we settle your case or win for you at trial.

The purpose of our law firm is to be an advocate for employees and to protect employees who have been victimized by their employers. If you've been sexually harassed, you are not the one who should be afraid or ashamed --- your harasser should be. Our clients depend on us to help right a wrong done by their employer. The attorneys of Abney & McCarty, PLLC may be able to get compensation for you, so that you and your family can regain financial stability and a sense of justice. Contact Abney & McCarty, PLLC for skilled and experienced legal counsel.

We Are Committed to Protecting Employee Rights in the Workplace.

Over 30% of women in America report being sexually harassed in the workplace. You are not alone. We can help.

Unlike many law firms that add employment law to a long list of practice areas or squeeze it in to augment their personal injury practice, we practice exclusively in the employment law area. We provide assistance in the following areas:

• Protecting your job while you still have it

• Enforcing your right to protected leaves such as the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

• Harassment: Sexual harassment is the most common form of harassment, but people also face harassment in the workplace because of their race, religion, age, disability, pregnancy status, or political activities, such as union organizing

• Pursuing a charge of discrimination based on your protected status such as race, age, sex, gender, and disability

• Pursuing a charge of retaliation for engaging in protected conduct such as opposing discrimination or complaining about illegal conduct in the workplace ("whistleblowing")

• Achieving reasonable accommodations for disabled employees

• Negotiating an exit strategy or severance from an existing employer and review of severance agreements

• Non-competition Agreements

• Achieving resolution of employment disputes

• Negotiating new employment contracts

• Wage and hour violations such as failure to pay overtime or minimum wage

• Slander and Defamation

• Violations of the Uniform Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act

• Wrongful Termination in violation of Kentucky's public policy

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.

Anonymity

Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
