I’m a lawyer at Ben Carter Law, PLLC in Louisville, Kentucky. One of my clients is the Network Center for Community Change: I work for them on issues surrounding foreclosure and vacant and abandoned property in Louisville and across Kentucky. I did a podcast with my friend, Annie O'Connell on how to start a law firm

Before starting my own firm, I worked at the Legal Aid Society defending homeowners from foreclosure, as a Public Defender in the Republic of Palau, and as Judge Wingate’s first (and worst) law clerk. I studied English at Davidson College and law at UK.  

I do what I'm supposed to do: exercise, eat healthy, go to church, and love UK athletics.

When I’m not doing that stuff, I’m probably Getting Things Done or listening to dorky podcasts.

If you want me to come talk to your local bar (or bar association), neighborhood association, or other group about any of the topics you read about here, just contact me or tweet me @notbencarter.

Here's a taste of what you're going to get if you follow me on Twitter...
