You can find us in historic Covington in the heart of Northern Kentucky, centrally accessible to the Greater Cincinnati area. We’re licensed to practice and represent our clients in both state and federal courts in Kentucky and Ohio.



Civil Litigation

Non-criminal law: that’s civil litigation. Cases that deal with construction, real estate, and product liability—we cover these areas and other disputes under the banner of civil litigation.

Crimial Defense

This practice area covers everything from drug misdemeanors to homicide, and our 40 years of experience means that we’ve defended felony offenses of all kinds.

Personal Injury

After an accident, the attorneys at MSP get started right away, dealing with insurance companies on your behalf to reduce the already-considerable burden on you and your family.



“Ms. Smith represented our interests regarding custody of a minor child. From initial placement in our home via county social workers through the granting of De Facto Guardianship, we had complete confidence in her counsel. The process took place over two years, and there were numerous court hearings. She explains complex legal ideas in layman terms, which kept us from feeling overwhelmed in a sometimes emotional situation. She is trust-worthy and prepared every time, and it’s evident she has respect from other attorneys and judges.”
