What Our Clients Think of Us

“At a time that was most vulnerable to me, namely my divorce, Brooke was compassionate and professional. She explained the process and how the case would unfold. She instilled a confidence in me that allowed me to move forward during the process and focus on what matters now, my son. She is decisive and is always thinking five steps ahead, thus she is always prepared and ready to fight for her clients.”

“Mrs. Brooke Cox and her entire team are a pleasure to work with. From the moment you call the office or walk in you are greeted by a friendly receptionist. They are eager to help in any way they can. Mrs. Cox was able to assist me in creating legal documents for my small business. She guided me through the process and ensured that everything was covered. Everything was completed in a timely manner and I was extremely pleased. I highly recommend her and will continue to choose her for any legal needs I need for my business and personal matters.”

- Cindy W.

What Our Clients Think of Us

“As I walked through the toughest times of my life during my custody battles, Mrs. Cox was there to walk through them with me. She helped me make all the correct decisions regarding my custody situation and followed measures required by Kentucky law. She made me feel welcomed and open to speaking with her. Saying ‘satisfied’ is such an understatement. It was truly a blessing having such a knowledgeable and professional lawyer by my side. I couldn’t have chosen a better lawyer to help me protect what was most important in my life – my daughters. I highly recommend Brooke Cox!"

- Amy M.

What Our Clients Think of Us

"I have been a client of Brooke’s for 5 years for both personal and business matters. In every situation she has gone above and beyond in making sure that I was always informed of any changes in the case, any court appearances that needed to be made, and thoroughly answered any questions or concerns I had. She was very prompt in returning phone calls and emails, which I greatly appreciated! She was ALWAYS well prepared for court and fought adamantly for our case. In every situation I had no doubt that she would pursue the case with my best interests in mind. I am thankful to have found someone I can trust with any legal needs and look forward to working with Brooke in the future!"

- Meagan E.

What Our Clients Think of Us

"I can’t say enough about Brooke Cox and her team! When our business relationship began in the summer of 2016, she immediately hit the floor running to represent me and my future. My situation was stressed and in spite of the emotional roller-coaster I was on, Brooke, Megan and the girls guided me and literally reeled me in to sanity! Since then, I have gotten to know Brooke even better and I couldn’t find a more genuine and knowledgeable attorney in the Campbellsville area. In fact, I am happy to call Brooke, Megan and everyone at the office trusted friends!"
