Dorislee Gilbert receives outstanding prosecutor award

Dorislee Gilbert was one of two assistant Commonwealth’s Attorneys across the state recognized for her outstanding service to the Commonwealth and the Jefferson County Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney. The award was presented at yesterday’s luncheon during the winter meeting of the Kentucky Prosecutors Conference. Dorislee was hired for our office in 2004 and began prosecuting child abuse cases with DVU. In 2010 she lateraled over to the appellate division where she continues to serve today as the Division Chief. Dorislee has been the portal for many law students who served as clerks and later Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorneys. She still prosecutes cases to keep her trial skills sharp. She has a keen eye for talent, a strong sense of justice, and great trial intuition. She is a great appellate attorney because she has walked the talk! Her “did you know” series and her in house trainings match any courses offered by the National District Attorneys Association and the Kentucky Prosecutors annual conferences. She is a true asset to all Kentucky prosecutors and is our treasure.

Thanks Dorislee for all you do!
