Self defense Murder Trial
In February of 2006, I encountered a prowler / stalker on the back portion of our property. Thie person had been asked to leave the property several times over the course of several weeks, but seemed to be able to find another way in each time.
When I confronted him in the back, around three hundred yards from the house, he stated that he had valentines to deliver to my wife and daughter. I told him that he knew where the front door was, and he did not need to be stalking around after dark. Things got a bit heated, and he stated that he was going to go through me to deliver the flowers.
When he reached for something in his jacket pocket, I flipped the shotgun up and fired from the hip, disabling that arm. Three more shots to that side of the body took him to the ground. I was arrested and charged with Murder.
Ken and his team immediately went to work, arranging bail so that I would not have to sit in lockup for three years until the trial finally arrived. Many hours and expert witnesses were brought in to help in establishing my self defense reasoning.
The prosecution used every trick in the book to make this look like a premeditated hit, as things were dug up from the past that I knew nothing about.
When it came down to the eleven days of trial, Ken’s team was well prepared to show. that I was indeed acting in self defense, and the jury agreed. They would have done the same thing that I did had they been in my shoes. Thanks, Ken.
I came to Mr. Bigham after a friend recommended him to me. I had recently signed a horrible decree regarding a nasty divorce and was facing criminal charges that my ex husband had pressed against me. I came in his office feeling hopeless. Mr. Bigham presented himself with a most professional manner while being personable with me as well. After a few minutes I felt comfortable and opened up to him about my entire situation. When we proceeded to court to address my criminal charges he explained his goal was to get them dismissed. These charges would hinder my future success in employment and were not something I wanted haunting me forever. He fought for me the entire time, even when the courts continued to want to give me a lesser charge but not dismiss it completely. He accepted nothing but what we were aiming for. He presented my case in an extraordinary manner. The courts ended up dropping my charges and I was overwhelmed with the amount of support he showed me. I would recommend Mr. Bigham to anyone facing legal issues, criminal and family. Mr. Bigham never gave me false hope and was brutally honest with me about everything. I felt an immense amount of confidence knowing Mr. Bigham was representing me. He is a fantastic lawyer and well respected among the community. I know you will find what you are looking for with him!

Ken Bigham was there when no one else was.
I would highly recommend Ken Bigham he helped us finally get justice for my brother’s murder after nearly 17 years. He was there every step of the way and always kept us informed we were never left wondering what happens next. We couldn’t thank him enough for all the hard work he put in to help us get to where we are today.
Best Lawyer Ever
When I met Ken I felt the assurance I had nothing to worry about this guy is the man the myth the legend. I worked with him on my case for about four months with a 2nd DWI and Probation violation on the first DWI. The entire time I felt nothing but confidence. You know when you call your lawyer and you never get a call back or they have no idea who you are a month later when you call with a question. This does not happen with Ken he remembers you and calls you most of the time before you call him. Have you ever had that secretary that never seems to give the message to the Lawyer? This does not happen with Ken and his team they are always on point and have their ducks in a row to take care of you in every way. ken is a people person that gives you the feeling things are going to work out. No doubt in my mind I will hire him again in the future if needed. Highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal representation.
