I have represented defendants in Boone County, Kentucky for over 21 years. If you were charged with a crime or arrested at CVG International Airport your case will be in Boone County, Kentucky. CVG is the airport code for Covington, but is Greater Cincinnati International Airport. If you land at the Cincinnati airport, you are actually in Northern Kentucky and although Covington is in Kenton County, the airport is in Boone.
Having represented numerous clients traveling to and through Cincinnati, I have developed a number of ways to communicate and handle client affairs for those who do not live in the immediate area. I will communicate with clients via telephone, email and text messages. This may be particularly important for those that live outside of the state, or even outside of the United States.
Many cases, particularly misdemeanor offenses, can be handled without the necessity of actually appearing in court in Boone County. This may include diversion or entry of a written plea in abstentia. Often people have questions which are very easy to answer and simple hurdles to overcome.
Q: What about fines and court costs? If you are required to pay fines, you may mail them.
Q: How do I pay my lawyer? If you need to pay legal fees, use a credit or debit card.
Q: Do I have to come to Kentucky for community service? If you are required to perform community service, you may generally do so where you live with any non-profit agency.
Most hurdles can be overcome. Having practiced criminal defense in the area for over 20 years, I am very familiar with the Northern Kentucky courts, personnel, the judges and prosecutors. I know how most cases are generally handled in advance of any hearing.

Want to end 2015 on a bad note? Start 2016 off terribly? If so, start drinking early and wake up in jail with a DUI arrest for the New Year. Every year law enforcement is out in bigger numbers to stop DUI beginning on New Year’s Eve and into New Year’s Day. The new year revelry often includes alcohol and then the prospect of getting home.
It is advisable to get alternative transportation, a taxi cab, Uber or other ride from a sober driver, if you have been drinking alcohol on this, or any other night. A DUI can cost over $10,000 if convicted. Even an acquittal is likely to cost $2,000-3,000. The big advantage of an acquittal is that your automobile insurance will not go through the roof – a reality that is likely to continue for 3-5 years. A conviction in Kentucky will cost nearly $1,000 in court costs and fines, $300 in court ordered counseling classes, license reinstatement fees in addition to loss of license for four (4) months.
An experienced DUI/criminal defense attorney can guide you through the process, advising of what are good issues to take to trial and when a deal is better to be struck. Very few attorneys will tell you it is as simple as pleading guilty. While that may actually be advantageous at some point, it is difficult to know until discovery is complete, knowing what issues may be available for suppression of evidence, if a video is favorable, or if blood or urine test may help your case.
Drinking alcohol and driving is not necessarily a crime. Know your rights by hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney who regularly practices in your county of arrest.
