Welcome

The lives of nearly every citizen of Pendleton County are impacted by the office of the Pendleton County Attorney.  Kentucky law makes it the responsibility of this office to represent the legal interests of the Pendleton County Fiscal Court and to advise them on important legal issues facing the County.

In addition to our civil responsibilities we prosecute all misdemeanor cases and traffic offenses, including serious offenses such as DUI, that are committed in Pendleton County. This office also conducts preliminary hearings of felony offenses that are initiated in District Court. The County Attorney represents the Commonwealth of Kentucky in all juvenile proceedings. We are also involved in a number of other aspects that assist the citizens of Pendleton County such as our cold check program, collection of delinquent taxes, assisting families with guardianship and mental health cases and helping parents collect the support due to their families.

As you can see, we have a large number of duties to perform on behalf of the citizens of Pendleton County. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality legal representation to all who need our services.

It is my hope that this site can provide the information you need to know, who we are, and what we do. It is an honor and a privilege to serve the people of this county. It is a calling that I enjoy and take very seriously. I look forward to serving you.

Sincerely,

JEFF DEAN
Pendleton County Attorney
