It is my privilege and honor to serve the people of St. Clair County as the District Attorney for the Thirtieth Judicial Circuit. Public service is the highest and best use that I could put my education and experience towards and for that reason, I have worked my entire professional career as a prosecutor.

As your District Attorney, I and my staff are committed to serving the citizens of St. Clair County in the administration of justice by the enforcement of the criminal laws of the State of Alabama. It is our duty to prosecute those that have violated the law and ensure that justice is done. As such, we serve as ministers of justice to ensure that guilt shall not escape nor innocence suffer.

The Office of the District Attorney for St. Clair County is comprised of two offices, one serving the southern part of the county in Pell City and one serving the northern part of the county in Ashville. In both offices, we work alongside law enforcement to seek justice for victims and their families; this is our highest priority. Within my office, we have dedicated staff to help individuals and businesses who need our services. Our Victim Service Officer is an advocate for victims and provides personal assistance throughout the criminal process. In addition, the Office offers a broad range of programs to meet various needs of our community. We help collect restitution for individuals and businesses as well as providing assistance to victims of domestic and child abuse.

I invite you to explore this website and learn a little more about your Office of the District Attorney. I am proud of the work we do and the people who do it. In closing, let me reiterate my commitment to the people of St. Clair County to enforce the laws of our great state fairly and impartially.
