Beth Breetz is Counsel to Stites & Harbison, PLLC, based in the Louisville, Ky., office. She is a member of the firm’s Business Litigation Service Group and co-chair of the Appellate Advocacy group. Her practice focuses on both federal and state appellate advocacy, complex commercial litigation, including financial institution, real estate, and trust and estate litigation.
