MMLK's first office was opened by W. Terry McBrayer in Greenup County, Kentucky in 1963. It was a small, energetic office, successfully providing cost-efficient legal services with its major concern for the client. Quickly, McBrayer, along with partners John McGinnis and Phillip Bruce Leslie, expanded the firm's knowledge, expertise, experience and reputation.
Over the next four decades, offices were opened in Lexington, Frankfort, Ashland, and Louisville. The growth of the firm and the additional locations expanded MMLK's practice into the entire state of Kentucky as well as other states.
From the beginning, MMLK aggressively pursued legal excellence, attracting some of the brightest legal minds in the region to the firm. To round out their expertise in multiple legal arenas, MMLK recruited experienced associates with a wide spectrum of legal skills who could effectively serve their clients. The firm's lawyers have studied a broad range of undergraduate course work including business, engineering, economics and finance, government, accounting and history. Their extensive base of academic achievement adds scope and perspective to their legal practice.
From day one MMLK's partners have had one goal in mind: serving their clients with personalized, results-oriented legal services. For W. Terry McBrayer, John R. McGinnis, Phillip Bruce Leslie, William D. Kirkland, their partners and associates, that goal remains unchanged.
