Brian Mattone was killed in a tragic automobile accident on May 2, 2012. He had been First Assistant County Attorney since August, 2006, when Larry Roberts chose him for this position. Brian was an outstanding trial attorney, having practiced for eight years in the Fayette Commonwealth's Attorney's Office. For the five and a half years he was in the County Attorney's Office, he worked closely with assistant prosecutors on trial techniques. His positive contribution to every department in this office was immeasurable, and his sudden loss has had a devastating impact on all of our employees, as well as the whole legal community.
