About Christopher A. Spedding is a Lexington, Kentucky Criminal Defense Lawyer
As a Lexington Kentucky criminal defense lawyer, I know legal matters are part of everyday life. Sometimes our involvement with the legal system results in great joy. But sometimes, bad things happen to good people. I practice law to help those who are accused of a crime. Whether it’s a traffic violation or a more serious charge like a misdemeanor or felony. Or something like DUI, Assault, Theft, Drug Possession, Drug Trafficking, Robbery and other crimes. When you find yourself accused of a crime, YOUR attorney is the only one who has your best interests in mind. That’s why you need a criminal defense attorney with extensive experience defending people just like you.
My life experiences allow me to view legal cases from all sides. As a former Military Policeman in the United States Marine Corps and while earning my degree in Police Administration, I became intimately familiar with the environment in which law enforcement operates. I understand their “language.” My experiences enable me to anticipate the angles law enforcement and prosecutors are likely to take when making a case against my criminal defense clients. A criminal defense lawyer with tunnel vision is a dangerous thing. You want a criminal defense lawyer who will fight for you.
More than 25 years experience as a Kentucky criminal defense attorney
After graduating from the University of Louisville School of Law, I practiced law in Louisville for 14 years. While in Louisville, I was a criminal defense lawyer, and I served for five years as general counsel for a large automotive dealer group. That’s where I learned the intricacies of the automotive sales and service business. That job allowed me to network with representatives of the various regulatory agencies that oversee the industry. I also worked closely with many manufacturer representatives. This gives me a unique body of experience to draw from when working on matters related to auto dealer law. After 14 years in Louisville, I decided I needed to become a Lexington Kentucky Criminal Defense Lawyer!
Practicing as a criminal defense lawyer in Lexington since 2006
In 2006, I moved back to Lexington and opened my own criminal defense practice. I’ve now been practicing law in Lexington and Louisville for more than 25 years. One of my life’s greatest passions is being a lawyer. I handle each case personally and mount the most effective legal defense possible for my clients. When representing auto dealer clients, I draw on my experience in the auto industry and my knowledge of the law. Remember, bad things happen to good people. I bring a unique perspective and body of knowledge to the situation to assist my clients. This is true for both criminal cases and when dealing with one of the many issues involving the auto sales business.
Defending those charged with crimes throughout the Bluegrass region
Although my criminal defense practice is based in my downtown Lexington (Fayette County) office, I serve clients throughout the region. It is not uncommon for me to represent criminal defendants in any of the surrounding counties, including Anderson, Boyle, Bourbon, Clark, Franklin, Garrard, Harrison, Jessamine, Madison, Mercer, Montgomery, Scott, Shelby and Woodford.
