About Sullenger Law Office, PLLC
After graduating with High Honors from a well-respected law school, Wes Sullenger began his career with a coveted judicial clerkship for an appellate court judge. He then moved into a mid-sized law firm with a national litigation practice focusing on employment law and commercial litigation matters. In 2005, Mr. Sullenger moved to Paducah, Kentucky so his wife could be closer to her family.
In Paducah, Mr. Sullenger spent a year as a professor at a newly created law school. Through all these experiences, Mr. Sullenger felt limited in his ability to act in the best interests of his clients by bureaucratic rules.
In 2006, Mr. Sullenger laid the foundation for opening his own law firm. By 2007, he formed the Sullenger Law Office. Sullenger Law Office initially handled only employment discrimination matters, successfully pursuing claims of disability discrimination, race discrimination, and sexual harassment. The firm gradually expanded its practices, drawing on Mr. Sullenger's previous experience with business law matters, retaliation claims, First Amendment claims, and other matters.
Since its founding, the firm has added attorneys and staff members to expand its services. Those other professionals brought experience with family law, criminal law, and other matters. This allowed Sullenger Law Office to serve clients in virtually all situations.
The Sullenger Law Office is a full-service law firm. The firm is dedicated to the proposition that law firms should exist to create opportunities for client service and not only to give lawyers a reason to do unnecessary work to justify their salaries.
Its lawyers are licensed in courts in three states, allowing them to practice criminal law, family law, estate, and other matters in Kentucky, Illinois, and Tennessee to go along with its national practice of employment law matters. Its founder is dedicated to providing legal services as good or better than any large law firm without the large firm hassles. Mr. Sullenger believes in keeping minimal overhead so his firm's rates are competitive and the firm can focus on serving clients by doing research, drafting briefs, and returning phone calls rather than worrying which paralegal will cover lunch when the receptionist is on vacation.
