As Oldham County Attorney, I am proud to present this new website for the residents of our county. The Office of the Oldham County Attorney touches the lives of virtually every citizen of Oldham County. My office is responsible for prosecuting thousands of criminal cases each year in district court, including DUIs, assaults, bad checks, thefts, juvenile crime, and many other statutory offenses. Under Kentucky law, the county attorney’s office is also responsible for serving as legal advisor to Oldham Fiscal Court, establishing paternity and collecting court-ordered child support, representing the Commonwealth in juvenile dependency, neglect and abuse cases, and assisting families with disability guardianship and involuntary mental health treatment for loved ones.
As an elected public servant with 45 years of practicing law, I take these duties very seriously. My office is led by a commitment to protecting our future by ensuring that Oldham County remains a safe place to live, work and raise a family. My talented staff recognizes that the performance of our jobs has a dramatic impact on our community. As your County Attorney, my team and I are here to serve you.
Please browse through this website as it contains important information about my office and the work we are doing. I hope the materials here will answer any questions you may have. However, feel free to contact me at your convenience with any questions or comments about the services we provide.
