Alan W. Roles
Alan has had the privilege of servicing his clients in the practice of law in Kentucky and Indiana, since his return to Louisville after three years in the Marine Corps. Alan has an Undergraduate Bachelor of Arts Degree from Florida State University, where he had a Double Major in Philosophy and History. After graduating from the University of Kentucky, College of Law in 1967, Alan served in U.S. Marine Corps as the Chief Prosecutor and then as the Chief Defense Counsel for the Third Marine Division. Upon completion of his military service he returned to Louisville and began practicing in the fall of 1970, as a solo practitioner. He is licensed to practice in Kentucky and Indiana and is admitted to practice before the Federal Courts in both states and the United States Supreme Court.
While he has had extensive experience in many areas of general practice, the primary areas of law in which he has worked have been in litigation of Personal Injury cases, including wrongful death cases, Domestic Relations, and Criminal Defense cases. He has also assisted clients by preparing their Wills and filing for Probate of Estates.
Alan is married to Patricia Roles. They have one child and two grandchildren. Over the years Alan has been actively involved in very various community organizations, including the Louisville Jaycees, where he served as a member of the Board of Directors and the Louisville Kiwanis Club. He was also on the Board of Directors of the YMCA Shelter House, which is now known as “Safe Place”, as well as on the Board of Directors of the Metro YMCA and was President of the YMCA Camp Piomingo Board. He has been active in leadership roles in various churches to which he has belonged. He has also been involved as an adult leader in two different Cub Scout packs. He served as Secretary of the Louisville Sail & Power Squadron and is currently on the Board of the Louisville Committee on Foreign Relations, where he serves as Membership Chairman.
Christopher J. Hoerter
Before cracking a book in law school, Chris had seven years of experience in a demanding legal environment. After graduating from Stanford University, he was a researcher at an engineering firm in the San Francisco Bay Area. His company defended car manufacturers in airbag, rollover, and related automobile lawsuits. Now, as a civil rights, criminal defense, and parents' attorney, who also has a successful personal injury practice, he defends real people and knows how the other side thinks.
Chris moved back to Louisville and obtained his law degree from the University of Louisville, at the same time earning a Masters degree in English. While his journeys have taken him far and wide, Chris has never forgotten his roots. He delivered two newspaper routes to pay tuition for St. Xavier High School. Although he devoted his early professional career to defending large corporations, the call for justice got louder as he began to practice law.
He has represented hundreds of clients in more than a thousand criminal cases, including second-chairing a murder trial and a 19-count Class A Felony trial in the state of Indiana.
Chris is regional legal counsel for the Critical Response Team of the United States Concealed Carry Association.
His life experience has molded him into a fearless, innovative, and aggressive advocate for people who are taken advantage of or injured, whether it is physical injury, consumer protection, civil rights, discrimination, or vindicating clients who are accused of committing crimes. Outside the office, family is number one for Chris. He is an avid fan of the University of Louisville Cardinals.
He is admitted to practice in Kentucky, Indiana, and the United States District Courts for the Western and Eastern District of Kentucky, as well as the United States Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.
