In January, Louisville Magazine mailed a survey to all active members of the Louisville Bar Association who reside in metro Louisville. The survey asked this question: “If you or a member of your family were in need of legal services, who among Louisville-area attorneys would you choose to provide services in the following practice categories?” Once again this year, we asked attorneys to list the top lawyers in two categories, “large” firms and “small/medium” (all other) firms. For the purposes of this survey, “large” firms are defined as those having 50 or more local attorneys. In each of the categories of services listed on the survey we asked the LBA members to name two attorneys in order of preference. In categories in which all “Top Lawyers” are in “large” or “small/medium” firms, we include only that firm size.

Each lawyer receiving a first-place mention in the survey was awarded two points; second-place mentions received one point. We then tabulated the results in each category to arrive at the listings of “Top Lawyers” presented on the following pages. The number of lawyers listed in each category differs depending on the total number of lawyers mentioned in a given category.

The top-scoring lawyers in each practice category are listed alphabetically, not in order of points received.

Deborah A. Bilitski

Wyatt, Tarrant & Combs

Top Lawyer 2010, ’12, ’13, ’14

Specialty: Land Use and Zoning Law

 

What’s the most interesting thing about being a lawyer in Louisville?

“Being a land-use lawyer, I bet I’ve been involved in development projects, planning efforts, or zoning issues in just about every neighborhood, small city, and Council district in Louisville Metro.”

What is your favorite courtroom/legal movie?

The Shawshank Redemption. It probably doesn’t qualify as a courtroom/legal movie, but it’s so incredibly good I can’t resist.”

Finish this sentence: I can’t get through the day without . . . “taking my dogs for a walk. Not to understate the therapeutic benefits, but mainly because they will not leave me alone until I do, no matter how freezing, sweltering, late or inconvenient it may be.”

John K. Bush

Briefly describe the most unusual or weirdest case you’ve handled.

“As a young attorney in Washington, D.C., I was on the team that represented former President Ronald Reagan in the independent counsel’s investigation of the Iran-Contra affair.”

What is something people would be surprised to learn about a lawyer’s life?

“Most of us lawyers — at least the ones I work with — are enjoyable people outside the courtroom.”

Finish this sentence: I can’t get through the day without . . . “reading a lot.”
