|Campbell County attorney Andrea Janovic announces candidacy for the Campbell County District Court Judge.|
Campbell County attorney, Andrea Janovic, announced her candidacy last week for the judicial vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Greg Popovich.
Janovic, 49, has worked for more than 10 years as an attorney in the northern Kentucky area, practicing primarily in Campbell, Kenton and Boone counties. Her office is in Newport.
Janovic lives in Fort Thomas with her son, Patrick, who attends Johnson Elementary. Her daughter, Hanna, is a nursing student, who also lives in Fort Thomas with her daughter. Janovic attended college at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and graduate school at the University of Rochester, before obtaining her law degree at Salmon P. Chase College of Law in 2005. Her law practice has always been varied, a large portion being cases before Campbell District Court, including probate, small claims, evictions, criminal cases, and guardianship. She has also handled many cases of elder exploitation, will contests, parent-rights, and grandparent rights.
"It has been my good fortune to have appeared on both sides of many types of cases over the years, such as representing landlords or tenants, estates, as well as contestants to the estate, domestic violence victims as well as those accused of perpetrating domestic violence," Janovic says. "This varied experience is critical for a district court judge. I am ready and willing to take on this challenge."
In addition to her law practice, Janovic is on the board of directors of historic Evergreen Cemetery, and is the acting Chairwoman of the Friends of Evergreen volunteer organization. In the past, she has served eight years on a school board and education-related committees at the local and state levels. She has also served as an instructor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Chatfield College for the last four years.
