Bethany L. Stanziano

BETHANY L. STANZIANO is a Kentucky-based, criminal defense trial attorney. She also handles the full range of domestic relations cases; including, contested and uncontested divorce, child custody, property division, paternity, child support and domestic violence cases. A former assistant public advocate in the Kentucky Department of Public Advocacy, she is a fearless advocate for her clients whether in the criminal or civil courts across south-central Kentucky. Even though she has only practiced 7+ years, Ms. Stanziano's successes have rivaled that of attorneys with far more years at the Bar.

In November 2010 the Kentucky Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers presented Bethany with its Clarence Darrow Prodigy Award. The award is given to a lawyer with five or fewer years of experience who demonstrates those qualities of advocacy exemplified by one of America's finest trial lawyers.
