Firm Overview

Kentucky Real Estate Lawyer 

I have more than 32 years of experience representing clients. My firm, the Orwin Law Office, is located in Somerset, Kentucky and I represent clients in Pulaski, Laurel, and Wayne Counties, and surrounding counties in south-central Kentucky. I Have represented clients in the local county court system as well as the Kentucky court of appeals, supreme court of Kentucky, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern/Western District of Kentucky, the Sixth Circuit Court of appeals and the U.S. Court of Claims.

Since my graduation from the University of Kentucky Law School, I have maintained the highest standards in the practice of law. My experience started with the Office of the Attorney General for the State of Kentucky as an investigator on consumer fraud cases before I attended Law School. 

Domestic Adoptions / Estate Planning

I represent families in areas such as adoption and estate planning because I know how important it is to build a loving family and secure a bright, happy future for the people you love. 

Business Transactions

I represent small businesses because I know what it takes to make a small business successful. My Bachelor's Degree at the University of Kentucky was in Business Administration, and I have been a small business owner for many years. In this economic crunch, an experienced business attorney can make all the difference to the  success of a small business. 


I represent struggling families who seek ways to overcome to financial hardship, helping them through temporary setbacks to a brighter, more hopeful future.

Real Estate Law

In addition to estate planning and business law, I've handled many residential and commercial real estate transactions, representing sellers, buyers, landlords and tenants. If you visit my office, I will be glad to discuss with you examples of clients I've represented; some are also listed in my Attorney Profile in this web site.


I represent families dealing with the loss of a loved one. we provide compassionate assistance to those in need of help with the probate process.

In 1996, I was named the Volunteer of the Year by the Kentucky Nature Conservancy for donated legal services in land acquisitions in the Rockcastle River Watershed.

A year earlier than the Kentucky Nature Conservancy honor, I was nominated as Volunteer of the Year for the Kentucky Bar Association, and I have served my profession as Chair of the Kentucky Bar Association House of Delegates 2000-2001.
