FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky Attorney General-elect Daniel Cameron has made appointments of two attorneys to lead his criminal and civil divisions.

Cameron announced Wednesday that Amy Burke will serve as an assistant deputy attorney general overseeing the office’s criminal justice matters.

Burke is currently chief prosecutor for the Kenton County Attorney’s office.

Cameron earlier this week appointed Victor Maddox as an assistant attorney general serving as civil chief within the AG’s office.

Maddox was a co-founder of the Louisville law firm Fultz Maddox Dickens, where he represents clients in constitutional, administrative, business, and personal injury matters.

Maddox’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,” Cameron said.
