With more than 100 years of combined attorney and paraprofessional experience, our commitment to our clients is to give our best to identify and assess all viable strategies for achieving a client’s own unique goals. There is no one-size-fits-all problem or solution. We work with many of our clients and former clients in all kinds of consumer and commercial disputes, facing the wide range of issues that arise in the lives of individuals, business owners and corporate operations across a range of Kentucky’s industries.
Our Team’s Mission
Our mission is to provide “best practices” legal services in all debtor/creditor-related situations, concentrating in debt restructuring, bankruptcy proceedings, and commercial disputes that lead to litigation, while following our firm’s commitment to civility, professionalism, creativity, passion, and serving as advocate and counselor to its clients.
At DLG, our employees take pride in being accessible and responsive to a client’s particular needs while recognizing that there is often more than one solution to every problem. DLG fully explores with its clients the pros and cons of each option and implements the agreed-upon strategy only after engaging in thorough analysis of possible short-term and long-range results. The goal is to obtain the best outcome possible for the client under the circumstances presented.
Our Firm’s Philosophy
Our philosophy is driven by our passionate commitment to our clients. We are a true team, not a random group of people from a national or multi-office law firm who may barely know each other. Our attorneys, paralegals and staff realize that many of our clients find themselves in extremely stressful and difficult circumstances that they never expected to encounter.
Financial “life or death” is often on the line with our clients. Time is almost always of the essence in our engagements, as time means money. We work very closely with our clients to brainstorm with them and explore options in their own unique situations, striving to minimize any surprises along the way. DLG knows how to serve as both counsel and strong advocate for our clients, looking ahead to possible reactions and actions of other involved parties.
By proactively engaging other parties in dialogue from beginning to end, we think we are better able to help our clients explore how the various options might play out, while recognizing that some factors are always outside our client’s control. We believe in a hands-on approach with our clients so they can make the best informed decisions for themselves, their families and their businesses. When surprises do occur, DLG believes in dealing with them as proactively and methodically as possible.
In addition to our commitment to a proactive and hands-on approach in our work, the DLG team shares a passion for making a positive difference in the lives of our clients, our communities and the legal profession as a whole. Our people strive to provide a professional, positive, and guiding influence and counsel through very difficult times. Our focus in the field of debt restructuring provides cost-effective results, as each case is managed to avoid expensive, protracted litigation and to explore all alternative dispute resolution avenues, while still being fully prepared to litigate if necessary.
DLG is a boutique law firm with its primary office located in a more than 200-year-old building in the historic Gratz Park neighborhood in downtown Lexington. For the convenience of our clients, we also have additional office locations in Danville and Louisville. Call 859-309-4653 or send us an email to initiate a consultation. We look forward to serving you.
