The Nebraska County Attorneys Association advocates for public policies that strengthen county attorneys’ ability to secure justice for crime victims and serve as legal counsel to their county.

We provide continuing legal education programs, service, support and resources to the county attorneys and staff to enhance and improve the quality of all prosecution throughout the State and facilitate access to best practices in law enforcement and public safety.

Pat Condon will run for Lancaster County attorney

Pat Condon announced Monday that he will run to be the next Lancaster County attorney.

Condon has 28 years experience in the office and for the past seven has been chief deputy to County Attorney Joe Kelly, a fellow Republican who has been nominated to be U.S. attorney for Nebraska and is awaiting confirmation.

Condon has handled criminal cases ranging from homicides and sexual assaults to child abuse and drug cases. As chief deputy, he’s maintained a full caseload, taking a majority of the office’s post-conviction cases, assigning cases and assisting with the budgeting process, “helping to maintain efficiencies in the office and a fiscally conservative approach to keeping Lancaster County safe, while maintaining the high standards Lancaster County voters have come to expect from the office.” Read More
