In January 2017, State Attorney Melissa Nelson created an Attorney and Community Development Division for the office with a focus on strengthening relationships both inside and outside the office.
Its internal focus is dedicated to attorney recruitment, training, morale, and diversity with the goal of ensuring the State Attorney’s Office is a premier destination for attorneys of all experience levels.
The mission within the community is equally as important. The office will be an active participant in pertinent events and discussions of importance throughout the community as a way to stay engaged, give back, and rebuild trust in areas where it might have lapsed in the past.
We will be sharing more of these efforts in the coming weeks and months.
