County Attorney

The Office of the Jefferson County Attorney touches the lives of virtually every citizen of Metro Louisville/Jefferson County. Its statutory responsibilities are to represent the legal interests of the government and to prosecute Jefferson District Court Cases.

But read about the other programs and services we offer, and you’ll find that our office is involved in many of the local issues you read about daily: government consolidation, child support, domestic violence, gun crimes, juvenile justice, drunk driving, and others.

As a district court judge, a circuit court judge and a prosecutor for more than 20 years, I have watched the  county attorney's office develop successful programs that are changing lives, providing assistance to victims, and helping our citizens build positive, productive lives. As your County Attorney, I will continue these efforts, while initiating new ideas to better serve you.

Please take a few moments and read about the work we are doing. I am proud to be your Jefferson County Attorney, and proud of the services I and my staff are able to provide to you. And if you need assistance, please contact my office.
