With more than ten years of legal expertise in the areas of Divorce and Family Law, Louisville, Kentucky-based Hugh W. Barrow is a Founding Partner of Barrow Brown, PLLC. His mission is to provide personal and empathetic client service to those living through divorce—a lost art among many legal service practices.
Working throughout the Louisville region and its surrounding counties, Hugh provides both high-end litigation services and uncontested and other out-of-court divorce solutions. He has represented thousands of clients in litigated cases and won numerous awards for his skilled trial work. He has extensive courtroom and trial experience, and currently serves as a court-appointed Guardian ad Litem in family court and as a Warning Order Attorney for the Jefferson Circuit Court.
After growing up in South Carolina, Hugh lived and worked in Maine, Vermont, Seattle and Alabama before settling in Washington, D.C., where he worked as an attorney in several law firms and nongovernmental organizations. Now based in Louisville, Louisville Magazine recently recognized him as one of Kentucky’s “Top Lawyers” while the National Trial Lawyers deemed him among the Top 40 Trial Lawyers Under 40.
Hugh earned his J.D. from Cumberland School of Law at Samford University, alongside an LL.M. from the University of Washington School of Law, an M.S. from Samford University and a Bachelor’s degree from Auburn University. He is a member of the Louisville Bar Association (Family Law Section), the Kentucky Bar Association.
Charles "Charlie" Brown is a Louisville native and graduate of duPont Manual High School. He studied psychology at Bellarmine University and law at Valparaiso University School of Law. In fear of another Northwest Indiana winter, Charlie returned to Louisville after his graduation from law school.
After law school, Charlie was first a Staff Attorney for a family court judge, and after that an Associate Attorney in a Louisville law firm. Seeing ample opportunity for innovation in the practice of law, and with some encouragement from Dad, Charlie struck out on his own. Charlie focused on offering those seeking a divorce a cheap, flat-fee, quick, and private means of getting an uncontested divorce.
To Charlie’s surprise, his new solo practice lasted a month, then another month, and then years. Next thing he knew, Charlie met a like-minded fellow and formed Barrow Brown, PLLC. Charlie, and Hugh, continue to devote their practice to divorce and family law matters. With a demanding desire to innovate and creatively problem-solve, Charlie and Hugh continue to hone and improve their practice; always eager to hear from clients about the firm’s processes and service.
