Theodore S. Hutchins


AV Preeminent Rating with Martindale-Hubbell

Ted Hutchins is a valuable advisor for any business, consistently providing solutions that help companies plan for a successful future. His practice spans a broad-spectrum of business law and taxation, including mergers, acquisitions and business planning. He approaches each client uniquely with a customized plan that considers aspects of the entire business. This approach has led Ted to develop an acute understanding of a client’s desire for asset protection, allowing the business to thrive and to be handed down to the next generation. Ted knows that a business leader has many decisions to make and has earned respect through his no-nonsense professionalism.

Ted also devotes a significant amount of his practice to trust and estate law. Whether it is drafting a will or navigating the pitfalls of probate, Ted uses his nearly 27 years of experience to ensure that clients accomplish their goals and achieve maximum tax savings.

As long as Ted can remember, he’s been a hard worker-a characteristic instilled in him by his parents, who insisted that he begin working on tobacco farms before he was a teenager. Ted believes that one of the most significant ways one’s life is defined is through work. Ted demonstrates his strong work ethic outside of his office as well, volunteering his time investing in the grassroots support systems of his hometown. He has worked with such non-profit and civic institutions as the United Way, the Community Foundation of Western Kentucky, the Lourdes Foundation, the Paducah Public Library, the Paducah Symphony Orchestra and the Lone Oak Youth Baseball-Softball Association. He and his wife, Monica, are proud to raise their family in Paducah.
