County attorney is a full-time job


July 10. 2018 8:15PM




To the Editor: I am writing in response to “Public job with a private practice”, which ran on the front page on July 9. I am firmly in the camp of those who think it is not prudent for county attorneys to have private legal practices on the side.

In my county, being county attorney is a full-time job. With only five attorneys on my staff, I am required to maintain an active caseload as well as handling the administrative duties. I could not possibly do my job effectively and serve my constituents if I was practicing law on the side. And that is why I totally divested myself from the private practice of law, and resigned my position with the law firm I previously worked with.

My time is fully devoted to my position as county attorney. So even though legally I could practice law on the side, I have chosen not to.
