Sherif Guindi will work tirelessly and effectively to defend you in your time of need.  With experience in prosecution and in defense, Mr. Guindi can help you navigate your way through the confusing, and often frightening, experience of being on the wrong side of the law.


Sherif Guindi is a criminal defense attorney who serves clients in Knox and surrounding counties.  He has defended clients for a variety of crimes, ranging from minor misdemeanors to major felonies.  Where there is room for negotiation, Mr. Guindi works tirelessly to put his clients' best foot forward.  When it is time for trial, Mr. Guindi leaves no stone unturned and fights for his clients.

Guindi began his career as a defense attorney who represented hundreds of clients in District and Circuit Courts in the Kentucky Counties of Harlan and Bell.  He was recruited by the Harlan County Commonwealth's Attorney and turned his efforts to the just prosecution of criminal cases.  As a prosecutor, Mr. Guindi prosecuted felonies, ranging from theft to murder, from the grand jury level to trial or settlement.  As a prosecutor, Mr. Guindi never forgot that his mission was to promote justice and not just to win cases.  Even as a prosecutor, he worked to make sure that the results of his prosecution were fair for all of those he served, including the defendants themselves.


Now, Mr. Guindi is proud to represent clients charged with crimes, once again.  Most criminal cases are resolved through settlement agreements, and Mr. Guindi uses his experience on both sides of the courtroom to help him reason with the State.  But, sometimes, a fair settlement cannot be reached.

Mr. Guindi has tried cases ranging from criminal trespass and driving under the influence to kidnapping and rape, both as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney.  Sometimes it is in his clients' best interest to work out a just settlement, but sometimes it is time for a fight.  Mr. Guindi does not shy away from a fight and uses his knowledge of the rules of criminal procedure and evidence and his experience in front of a jury to aggressively defend his clients.

If you are looking for a defense attorney, you need not look any further.


You do not have to do it alone.

Experience.  Dedication.  Justice.  For you and those who depend on you.
