About Peter Brackney
In 2015, Peter Brackney launched the Brackney Law Office, PLLC where he gets results for Kentucky individuals, families, and businesses. Whether filing a consumer bankruptcy, preparing a will, or helping a widow navigate through the probate process, Peter strives to treat each client the way he would want his own family treated: in a professional manor with a healthy dose of compassion.
A Professional, Compassionate Approach
Peter strives to handle each of his clients with respect and compassion. “Most people don’t approach bankruptcy willingly and they are usually at their wits end. I try to understand their situation before laying out their options and hopefully laying out a path toward the fresh start they deserve,Nothing is more rewarding than watching a client realize they are nearing the end of their debt trap.” says Brackney.
Peter takes the same approach with his estate planning clients. Most individuals don’t like facing their own mortality, but doing so can bring peace of mind for both themselves and for the loved ones left behind.
Beyond the Law
Peter was born in Ohio, but he grew up in Lexington and calls central Kentucky home. As a double alumnus of the University of Kentucky, he bleeds blue! He married his high school sweetheart and together they have three children (and two dogs). When he isn’t practicing law, Peter is a big history buff. His award-winning website, www.thekaintuckeean.com is about Kentucky’s rich history. And he has written two books on the subject of local history: Lost Lexington, Kentucky; The Murder of Geneva Hardman and Lexington’s Mob Riot of 1920. And he’s co-authored a third: A History Lover’s Guide to Lexington and Central Kentucky. And over the years, he’s served on various community and church boards and committees.
