“We were screwed. We had lost the case, game over. Our grandmother had passed, and we believed 1/2 of the farm belonged to us. The farm was valuable. But the other half of the family thought it was all theirs. A will contest ensued. We hired a local attorney out of Bullitt County believing he would have more luck than an out-of-towner. But the trial court awarded the judgement to the other side of the family. We went to Greg immediately. He filed a lengthy brief with the trial court, then filed an appeal and fought it all the way to the Kentucky Supreme Court. We got the case reversed, we got our 1/2 of the farm, and Greg negotiated a sale of the property, putting a check for $360,000 in our hands. He did not give up, he fought hard, he is a good attorney, and I recommend him.” S.S.

“I came to the United States seeking Freedom, and the ability to own my own business.  I have used Greg for many years.  I own a small grocery, Oak Street Food Mart, in Old Louisville.  Last year I was cited by the ABC, (Alcohol Beverage Commission) for selling alcohol for consumption on premises.  We sold a guy a beer, inside the store, he walked out, got in his car, and opened it.  To pay the citation would have cost me $1,800.00, just because a guy was drinking a beer he bought and paid for, in my parking lot.  I went to Greg, and I told him I wanted to pay it, and then I was going to move out of state, because the Louisville ABC was operating like the police in a third world nation.  Greg insisted that I stay, and that the charge be fought, and to prove American law was not the same as a third world nation, he took the case for free.  We lost at the initial hearing.  Greg explained to me that the administrative law judge was employed by the ABC, so he was their man.  Greg appealed to the state ABC, who, after a hearing, totally reversed the charges.  I have faith again in American Justice.  If you are in business, and you need a good lawyer, I recommend Greg”  F.S., Oak Street Food Mart.  8/30/2017.

In mid 2016, I was charged with two counts of Arson; Arson 3rd and Arson 2nd.  These charges carried a potential 25 years of time in the penitentiary.  I was only 21 at the time.  I had walked out of a bar on Baxter, and, for reasons I do not understand myself, broke into two cars and set them on fire.  I was drunk, and I was young.  Worse, it was all caught on video.  Even worse, I lost my wallet at the crime scene, meaning when the fire department and police showed up, they had my license.  I was toast, clearly guilty.  My great aunt advised me to call a long time prosecutor.  I did.  He said two words:  Greg Butrum.  I called Greg.  In February, 2017, with Greg’s guidance, I entered a diversion agreement with the Commonwealth, which means that, if I stay good for five years, the case against me will be dismissed, and the charges may be expunged.  If you are in trouble, I say two words:  Greg Butrum.  He made staying free possible for me.  David B.  2-3-17.
