Awards and Recognitions

The law firm and individual attorneys of Bubalo Goode Sales & Cronen have consistently been recognized by our peers for our legal knowledge, our trial skills and our professionalism.

  • Legal Acumen: Bubalo Goode Sales & Cronen is a group of highly skilled trial attorneys who work with individuals and small businesses who have been injured through the negligence of others. The firm has made a name for itself in local and national press by its work on high-profile products liability and personal injury cases involving dangerous drugs, catastrophic accidents, and others.
  • Trial Experience: Trial experience is a cornerstone of the Kentucky firm. “Attorneys who have actually presented complex cases to a jury are not that common because many cases settle,” says managing partner Greg Bubalo. “Our unique experience in presenting civil jury trials from A to Z is the essence of our qualification as attorneys.”
  • National Recognition: The firm’s attorneys (many of whom are AV®-rated and have been recognized by Best Lawyers for years) have appeared in countless state courts as well as federal district courts, with appearances nationwide in various Multi-District Litigations. Kenneth Sales, a veteran attorney with more than 35 years of experience, has argued in front of the United States Supreme Court.
