Recognized as one of the top disability attorneys in Louisville by Louisville Magazine, attorney Christopher Harrell regularly handles cases in all Family Divisions of Jefferson Circuit Court. These cases include adoptions, divorce, child custody, paternity, dependency/neglect/abuse, and child support actions, as well as post-divorce matters. Chris also handles many Social Security disability cases and Workers' Compensation claims.
In addition to the types of cases listed above, Chris is regularly appointed by the Family Court to represent children as a Guardian Ad Litem in dependency, neglect, and abuse actions. Furthermore, he is appointed as a children's attorney by various Jefferson Family Court Judges in contested child custody actions.
Chris is a trained Family Court mediator, and is a member of the Approved Jefferson Family Court Mediation list. He is certified as a Family Mediator by the Kentucky Administrative Offices of the Courts.
Chris' experience as a mediator and children's attorney has a significant influence on his approach to divorce and custody litigation. Chris is acutely aware of the adverse impact that contentious litigation can have, not only on a family's finances, but also on the emotional health and wellbeing of all parties involved, especially the children. As a result, Chris will explore alternative methods of dispute resolution, including mediation, in order to seek a fair resolution of issues in dispute. Of course, some cases cannot be settled, and litigation is certainly an option. Chris' history with the Legal Aid Society, representing survivors of domestic violence, along with his over fifteen years of experience has well prepared him to be an effective courtroom advocate and litigator.
Chris Harrell has handled hundreds of Social Security disability and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) cases since his admission to the bar in 1993. By limiting his practice to the representation of persons with injuries, as well as persons needing representation in family court, Chris is able to focus on the latest developments in disability law. Chris is a former chair of the Social Security Disability section of the Louisville Bar Association (LBA) and is a frequent lecturer at Continuing Legal Education seminars on the topic of Social Security Disability. Chris is a continuing member of the LBA Social Security section, as well as the National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives (NOSSCR). Chris is also a published author in the area of Social Security disability.
