Mendota native partners to create civil litigation law firm


Hicks & Funfsinn, PLLC open law offices in Kentucky

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Former Mendotan Gregory M. Funfsinn and Joshua D. Hicks have announced the opening of Hicks & Funfsinn, PLLC, a boutique civil litigation law firm. Their offices are located at 431 South Broadway in Lexington, Ky. and 111 Short St., Lawyer’s Row, in Harrodsburg, Ky.

Hicks and Funfsinn plan to help people in need of legal help throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky. “We are extremely excited to use our extensive litigation and trial experience to help injured Kentuckians or people who have been sued anywhere in Kentucky,” stated Funfsinn, who graduated from Mendota High School in 1999.

Hicks & Funfsinn, PLLC will prosecute and defend catastrophic accident and other claims involving injuries due to negligence or wrongdoing. Other practice areas will include financial disputes and workplace lawsuits. “Unlike some other law firms in the state, Greg and I will perform the legal services ourselves rather than delegating them to associates who have never taken a deposition or tried a case,” Hicks added.

Hicks and Funfsinn have nearly 20 years of combined legal experience, including hundreds of trials, depositions and court hearings on cases involving negligence, construction defects, products liability, business litigation and other disputes.

Hicks, who is currently running for Kentucky state representative, is a former U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant, serving from 1999-2003. He then worked as a police officer for the Maysville Police Department for five years before attending the University of Kentucky Law School, where he graduated in 2008. Hicks, who lives in Lexington, most recently worked as an attorney for Stoll Keenon Ogden, PLLC in their Lexington office.

Funfsinn was most recently a partner at Walters Meadows Richardson, PLLC and also worked as an attorney at Landrum & Shouse LLP. Prior to moving to Lexington from Chicago in 2012, Funfsinn worked as a criminal prosecutor for the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office (CCSAO), the second largest prosecutor’s office in the United States. He graduated from Chicago-Kent College of Law in 2007.
