The Yavapai County Attorney’s Office is the largest law firm in northern Arizona. County Attorney Polk manages a staff of 100 employees, with both criminal and civil duties, and an annual budget of approximately 8 million dollars. The Office prosecutes all felony and juvenile offenses that occur in Yavapai County, misdemeanors that occur in the unincorporated areas of the County, and provides legal representation to all county departments. Prior to her election in 2000, County Attorney Polk worked as a deputy prosecutor in both the civil and criminal divisions of the Office. She personally provided legal advice to numerous county agencies and officials, and handled a large caseload of serious felonies.

“It is an honor and a privilege to represent you as your County Attorney. My staff and I work hard to justify the confidence you have placed in us. This office serves more than 200,000 residents in the county. Our top priorities are to hold criminals accountable for the crimes they commit, and to ensure that the rights of crime victims are honored and respected throughout the criminal justice process.”
