Law Firm Overview

Bolus Law Office is a full service law firm representing and advising clients in areas of personal injury, medical malpractice, civil rights, business, products liability general negligence and criminal law. Located in the heart of downtown Louisville, Bolus Law Office offers complete legal services for both Kentucky and Indiana.

James Bo Bolus began practicing law in 1991 with an insurance defense firm. His first 4 years in law were spent primarily defending the business or individual accused of injuring or wronging a person. He was, however, allowed to take select cases for the injured person and, in 1995, obtained a million dollar settlement for a client injured in an auto accident. That same year he started his own practice and has helped hundreds of clients collect jury and settlement awards totaling in excess of ten million dollars in compensation for injuries they have suffered.

Bolus Law Office prides itself in providing the same attention to detail and thorough preparation to every case, however large or small. The firm uses the latest technology necessary to compete with the big firms, in order to achieve the result the client deserves.
