DESCRIPTION OF OUR OFFICE:

The Office of the State Attorney Third Judicial Circuit is located in North Central Florida and is comprised of seven counties: Columbia, Suwannee, Madison, Dixie, Taylor, Hamilton, and Lafayette.

In our other counties, dive into crystal clear springs, explore lush trails, and savor the picturesque landscapes that make North Central Florida a nature-lover's paradise. Throughout the circuit, embrace a rich tapestry of arts, music, and festivals that celebrate the region's diverse heritage and foster a strong sense of community. Maintaining a low-stress work/life balance is a priority with easy commutes to work, a safe, family focused community with excellent schools and a congenial working relationship with all members of the Third Circuit Bar.
