When Marc Robbins retired as Madison County Attorney in 2017, he told his local newspaper that he would “continue to find ways to grow and serve.”

He has done that, first with continuing his private law practice, and now, Robbins is taking over as executive director of the Kentucky County Attorneys Association (KCAA) beginning April 1.

“I’m very excited to assume the role as executive director of the Kentucky County Attorneys Association,” Robbins said. “Having served for nearly 20 years as Madison County Attorney, I understand and appreciate the vital role that county attorneys play both for their local communities and the Commonwealth."

“I look forward to being an advocate for the association and especially look forward to strengthening our relationship with KACo to further assist in providing quality programs and services to our counties.”

First elected to serve in Madison County as county attorney in 1998, Robbins was re-elected to serve four additional terms. During a portion of that time, he was a board member for KACo, and he was a former vice president, legislative chair and board member for KCAA.

In both 2005 and 2012, Robbins was named County Attorney of the Year, and he was awarded a special recognition award from KCAA in 2010.

Prior to his tenure as county attorney, Robbins was assistant city attorney in Richmond for eight years.

He opened Robbins Law Office in Madison County in 1988 following graduation from the Northern Kentucky University’s Salmon P. Chase School of Law. He also is a graduate of Eastern Kentucky University.

Robbins is replacing Bill Patrick, who recently retired as KCAA executive director.
