(December 2, 2019) – Attorney General-elect Cameron today announced the appointment of attorney Victor Maddox as Assistant Deputy Attorney General. In this role, Maddox will serve as the civil chief within the Office of the Attorney General.
“Vic has spent his career litigating complex legal matters at every level of our court system, and his breadth of knowledge will be essential to leading our civil branch,” said Attorney General-elect Cameron. “I am confident that his experience will serve Kentucky families well.”
Maddox co-founded the Louisville firm known today as Fultz Maddox Dickens, PLC, where he represents clients in constitutional, administrative, business, and personal injury matters. He is an expert in litigation matters and has represented elected officials and Kentucky citizens in his nearly four decades of legal experience, including vast experience at both the trial and appellate level.
Maddox was previously a partner with the predecessor firm to Frost Brown Todd, LLC, where he served in the firm’s litigation practice and was involved in cases regarding securities fraud, products liability, trade secrets, and engineering liability.
“Attorney General-elect Cameron promised Kentuckians that he will serve as their lawyer, not the lawyer for any special interest,” said Maddox. “I look forward to using my experience on both the plaintiff and defense side to achieve results for Kentucky families.”
During his early career, Maddox worked in Washington, D.C., as a trial attorney with the Civil Division of the United States Department of Justice. He later served as Counsel on the Senate Judiciary Committee for Senator Mitch McConnell, where he oversaw judicial and Justice Department nominations.
Maddox was also appointed to the board of the Legal Services Corporation, a federally-chartered non-profit that provides funding for legal aid in civil cases to low-income Americans, by President Obama on the recommendation of Senator McConnell. In that capacity, Maddox serves as chairman of the Audit Committee and co-chaired the organization’s Opioid Task Force.
“Vic’s addition is further proof of General-elect Cameron’s vision to recruit Kentucky’s best and brightest to the Office of the Attorney General,” remarked incoming Deputy Attorney General Barry Dunn. “Vic’s expertise will be put to immediate use in seeking justice for those who have caused injury to Kentuckians, and in defending the laws passed by the General Assembly.”
Maddox is a graduate of Ohio University and the Indiana University Maurer School of Law. He currently resides in Louisville.
