Meridith Clymer, Your Paducah Based Attorney
Meridith is a Paducah based attorney. Her legal experience is broad and unique. She has experience in many different areas of the law including complex estate planning, insurance defense, toxic tort litigation, criminal defense and 9 years as a criminal prosecutor. She has extensive experience in juvenile and dependency, neglect and abuse courts. Meridith pulls from the many skills she has gathered in these areas of the law to focus on the methods and tactics she will use to defend her clients’ rights at their attorney.
Meridith has personal experience in all levels of criminal prosecutions including: the initial law enforcement’s suspicion of a person; the law enforcement investigation process; the evaluation of an investigation by the prosecution and charging decision; the negotiation process between prosecutors and defense attorneys; the court process in handling a prosecution, up to, and including trial.
Meridith has chosen to focus her law practice exclusively on defending those who are facing criminal charges, juvenile matters and dependency, neglect and abuse cases. She keeps her practice small and takes a limited amount of cases to ensure she is able to devote her full attention to each of her clients’ individual needs and special circumstances.
Meridith knows that personal service and an individual client-centered approach are the keys to successful representation as an attorney. She will listen to you, fully evaluate your case and personal circumstances, then craft a specific defense plan for representing you and ensuring that your rights are protected.
My years of experience as a criminal prosecutor have taught me that the most effective criminal defense attorneys are those who know the law backwards and forwards and know their clients cases inside and out. That kind of knowledge, and ability to communicate it to prosecutors, judges and juries, is key to protecting their clients’ rights and making sure justice is done. I’ve seen it time and time again.
