Welcome to the Lyon County District Attorney's Office website. It is an honor and privilege to serve as your District Attorney. We are here to serve our citizens, law enforcement agencies and county government. Our goal is to provide quality service to everyone who comes in contact with our office.

We aggressively prosecute cases in a manner that maximizes public safety and minimizes victimization. We are dedicated to the treatment of crime victims in a manner which preserves dignity and bestows compassion and respect.

We strive to serve the public by fostering ethical, effective and efficient government by providing the highest quality legal advice and representation to our county government officials and departments and by administering the child support enforcement program in an ethical and fair manner.
