Laraclay is a trial lawyer with Golden Law Office in Lexington, Kentucky. She heads the firm’s Nursing Home and Medical Malpractice Group and devotes her practice to fighting elder abuse in nursing homes, dangerous pharmaceutical drugs, and large corporations that violate Kentucky’s laws. Laraclay believes that the American jury system is the best and only way to hold large companies accountable to their communities. She exclusively represents individuals who have been harmed and has no corporate clients.
Laraclay has served as lead counsel in a number of matters in both federal and state court and has tried multiple civil cases to successful results in Kentucky. Recently, in February of 2020, she obtained a $1.08 million unanimous jury verdict in Bath County, Kentucky on behalf of her client who was terminated from a local manufacturing plant. Laraclay has been recognized as a Top 40 Under 40 Civil Plaintiff Lawyer by The National Trial Lawyers since 2017.
Laraclay’s legal practice is informed by her background and training. When she passed the bar, her first legal job was at a large regional law firm that only did defense work. She spent two years defending national manufacturing corporations, nursing home chains, and pharmaceutical companies against their own employees, victims of malpractice, and others who had been injured by her clients’ businesses. In 2016, she nearly quit the practice of law rather than continue her defense practice. Instead, she decided to change her whole career to focus exclusively on injured Kentuckians and has never looked back. Laraclay’s inside experience on how large corporations operate from a financial, legal, and ethical perspective helps her expose the harm done to her clients in the courtroom.
