Greetings, and thank you for visiting my web page!
My name is LISA L. LANGFORD, and I was born and raised in Louisville. My parents Harvey and Ann Langford are both graduates of higher institutions in Kentucky (Murray State, Kentucky State and University of Louisville). My father, Harvey, retired from a 33 year career with the IRS here in Louisville. My mother, Ann S. Langford, retired from JCPS where she taught and served as counselor to thousands of children in Jefferson County.
I am blessed to have parents who have always valued God, family and a quality education. They instilled these same principles, ideals and standards in me, and I in turn honored them by imparting these characteristics in my two sons, David and Michael.
Along with my 2 siblings, I’m a proud product of Jefferson County Public School system having attended Dunn Elementary, Kammerer Middle and Ballard High schools. After receiving numerous accolades, awards and a scholarship, I chose to attend the University of Louisville for my undergraduate studies. I later transferred to Kentucky State University to complete my bachelor’s degree in accounting.
Following graduation, I accepted an auditor position with the USDA in Indianapolis, IN. Three years later, I returned to Louisville and have resided here ever since. My hard work in the private sector, prior and during law school, was with GE and HUMANA; and my work in the public arena was with the City of Louisville Law Department and, subsequently, with the JEFFERSON COUNTY ATTORNEY’S OFFICE, where I have faithfully served our community since 2003.
My personal journey as well as my extensive professional experience in criminal litigation, employment law, government law, and customer/client relations, coupled with my legal education at the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law, led to my thoughtful decision to become a prosecutor. Throughout my career as an Assistant County Attorney, I have made fair and balanced judgments, while serving my community and its residents with honor. I am now well-equipped and prepared to assume the next position in my legal career serving the people of Jefferson County in yet a higher calling—that is of District Court Judge.
