Attorney

The Kane County Attorney's Office is dedicated to serving the public in a manner that is open and accountable, fair and just, and effective and efficient.  The Kane County Attorney's Office handles the criminal prosecution of all felonies and class A misdemeanors in Kane County along with all other misdemeanor and infraction crimes in the unincorporated areas.  The Kane County Attorney is the general legal counsel for the County and all of the county elected officials and departments.  The Kane County Attorney's Office administers the Kane County Drug Court Program, the Kane County Children's Justice Center, and Kane County Victim Services. Currently the Kane County Attorney's Office also contracts with Kanab City for their misdemeanor criminal prosecution and as general legal counsel for the Kanab City Council and Kanab City Planning Commission.  Kanab City is currently transitioning to an inhouse attorney and this relationship is set to terminate on December 31 of this year.  The current County Attorney is Rob Van Dyke.  He has one deputy attorney, Jeff Stott.  The office staff consists of a Victim Advocate, Devin Shakespear, a Legal Assistant, Sarai Brinkerhoff, and a Drug Court Case Manager, Candi Crofts.

The County Attorney acts as general legal counsel for the County, each elected official and all of the County departments.  Many residents of the county however are mistaken in the belief that the County Attorney should provide personal legal advice to them.  In fact, the opposite is true.

If you are in need of personal legal assistance please refer to the links section. There you will find a link to the Utah State Courts' website which contains a lot of good information and self help tools.  There is also a link for the Utah State Bar website where you can find an attorney that specializes in your area of concern.  Because Kane County has very few private practice attorneys, the attorneys that work in the County Attorney's Office are allowed to take private clients on a limited basis.  If you are in need of their services please be clear about your request to hire an attorney for personal legal advice when contacting the County Attorney's Office.
