Brenda L. Bonecutter is the most qualified candidate for the position of Campbell Family Judge. Her legal experience has prepared her for the position and her temperament and compassion for children and families makes her the best choice.
Brenda graduated from Salmon P. Chase College of Law in 1997. While in law school she served as law clerk to Judge J. Gregory Wehrman, United States District Judge, and later clerked at Nielson & Sherry, P.S.C in Newport. Brenda started her law practice in Campbell County upon graduation as a general practitioner focusing primarily on family law. Brenda has been appointed for the last 23 years by the Commonwealth of Kentucky to represent abused, neglected and dependent children and the families of Campbell County as their guardian ad litem to protect their rights and keeping children safe. Thus, Brenda has been representing families of Campbell County even before the inception of the Family Court which began in 2002. Brenda is admitted to practice in all courts in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the State of Ohio, as well as the United States Federal District Court and the Supreme Court of the United States. Brenda formed a partnership with G. Keith Gambrel, Bonecutter & Gambrel, L.L.P., from 2000-2005, and later The Bonecutter Firm, L.L.C. in 2005 to present where she has served clients in both Kentucky and Ohio in all areas of Family Law including divorce and dissolution, paternity, custody and parenting time, child support, adoptions, and in defending and representing the citizens of Campbell County as a Guardian Ad Litem as stated above. Protecting Campbell County families has been a cause near and dear to her for the last twenty-three years, as a mother, sister, daughter, wife and friend she feels this is such an important role to fill in serving the community as well as a duty in the practice of law.
“The Dependency, Abuse and Neglect Docket is a large part of Family Court, and I have witnessed the good this docket does for the children of Campbell County and am proud to have represented so many families through the process. The importance of making sure every child has a safe place to live, the basic necessities that so many take for granted, and the right to an education is paramount. I would be proud to serve the citizens of Campbell County as the next Family Court Judge.”
