Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is a serious issue that impacts Louisville, KY & surrounding counties residents and their families every single day. The charges can come in many forms: physical abuse, emotional abuse, and sexual abuse are all considered forms of domestic violence.

The laws regarding domestic violence are very strict, and they provide several protections for victims who have suffered abuse at the hands of their spouses or other family members.

Domestic violence charges can be brought against either the perpetrator or the victim in certain situations. If you have been charged with this crime, it is important to understand your legal options so that you can protect your rights throughout the criminal process and avoid making mistakes that could hurt your case.

Drug Possession and Trafficking

Drug possession refers to the unlawful possession of illegal drugs or prescription medications without a valid prescription from a doctor or other medical professional. Drug trafficking on the other hand refers to selling or distributing illegal drugs for profit or advantage.

The penalties for both drug possession and drug trafficking vary depending on the type of drug involved, the amount of the drug possessed, and whether it is a first offense or a repeat offense. However, if you are caught selling or distributing illegal drugs for profit or advantage, it is considered a felony offense that carries stiffer penalties.

Mudd Legal Group represents individuals charged with drug possession and trafficking throughout Kentucky. Our experience with drug offenses gives us the knowledge and skills necessary to help clients avoid unnecessary penalties by fighting their charges in court.


Do you have a criminal record and are sitting on the fence about whether or not to get it expunged? You may be wondering why you should even bother. Well, expunging your criminal record may just open up new doors for you that you didn’t even know existed.

Expungements are a powerful tool for criminal defense attorneys in Louisville, KY & surrounding counties, to help their clients. This process wipes away a criminal record so that it is no longer visible to the public and helps you move on with your life.

You are eligible to have your charges expunged if the following apply:

  • The charges were dismissed
  • The grand jury chose not to bring charges against you
  • You were found not guilty
  • You received a pardon from the governor
  • You were convicted of misdemeanor charges
  • You were found guilty of certain Class-D felonies

A criminal record can hurt your chances of getting a job or housing and it can also prevent you from obtaining certain licenses or professional certifications. An expungement will clean up your record so that it no longer appears on background checks, allowing you to move forward with your life without having to worry about past mistakes following you around forever.

If you want to get an expungement in Louisville, KY & surrounding counties, then contact Mudd Legal Group today!

Federal Crimes

Federal crimes are prosecuted by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) through their various agencies and departments. They include a wide range of offenses, from drug trafficking and money laundering to white-collar crimes like fraud and conspiracy.
