About Our Paducah Law Firm

Millions Recovered for Our Clients

When Katz Law was founded in 1998, we purposefully chose to represent people injured by the negligence of others, injured working on or around the river, and those going through divorces and domestic matters. We intentionally chose to represent people who are going through the most trying times of their lives. Since 1998, Katz Law has put our proven trial strength to work helping injured people get the compensation they need and deserve, and protecting the interests of people involved in family law matters of all kinds.

Along the way, we are proud to have recovered millions of dollars to help people and families move on with their lives after being hurt due to an act of negligence or while working on the river, and to have saved millions of dollars for people going through a divorce.
