Message from the County Attorney

As a prosecutor for more than 10 years, I have always believed that prevention is better than prosecution. As your Butler County Attorney, I have turned that philosophy into reality with the creation and enhancement of a variety of programs which are changing lives, providing assistance to victims, and helping our citizens build positive, productive lives.

Thank you for taking the time to read about the work we are doing. I am proud to be your Butler 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.
