A. Layne Stackhouse


Defective Drug Attorney

A. Layne Stackhouse is a member of Shrader & Associates L.L.P.’s pharmaceutical and medical device department. Here she works as a defective drug lawyer representing clients injured by dangerous drugs and defective medical equipment.

While attending Western Kentucky University, Layne was a reporter and editor for student newspaper, the College Herald Heights. This gave her invaluable experience learning how to investigate and probe interviewees for information. She graduated from WKU magna cum laude and went on to Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, and finished in the top 15% of her class.

Legal Background & Experience

Layne covered a broad scope when she started her work as a lawyer, handling criminal, civil, and family law cases. During this time she had substantial victories in both settlements and trials on behalf of personal injury and car wreck victims. Finding the work rewarding, she joined Shrader & Associates L.L.P. and concentrated her efforts on defective pharmaceuticals and medical equipment.

Since early 2012, Layne has practiced mass tort cases against big pharmaceutical companies unscrupulously releasing defective drugs to the public. These complex cases have pitted her against intimidating opposition, and she has consistently managed to come out on top. Her impressive work has seen her recognized by peers to the Super Lawyer® Rising Stars list.

Practicing Across the Country

Layne is currently licensed to practice law in Kentucky, the Western District of Kentucky, and the Eastern District of Kentucky. Her ever-expanding range of work has inspired her to obtain memberships and licenses in Texas legal associations and is a member of the American Association for Justice. She also attended the AAJ’s distinguished inaugural Leadership Academy Class.
