Dwight Preston
Dwight Preston

Mr. Dwight Preston is a native of Hardin County and has a genuine love of his community.  After completing his legal education in San Diego and being admitted to the bar in 1974, Preston returned to Elizabethtown to practice law. Paul Lewis (retired) took him under his wing and gave him hands-on experience in the court room.

Dwight possesses a great work ethic and will not rest till he has finished a case. (And is fierce in the court room when he needs to be).

Mr. Preston served as the Commonwealth's Attorney, Hardin County, from 1982-1992; he served as Hardin County Attorney, from 1978-1982. He is member of Hardin County and Kentucky Bar Associtation.

Published in the San Diego Law Review 1973-1974, his legal writings include, “Zoning—Rural America, a New Lease on Life,” and “No Hablo Ingles:  a Written Agreement Plus Consent Equals Contractual Liability of Illiterates?”

AV rated for 12 consecutive years, Dwight’s peers recognize his achievements, scoring him a 5 out of 5 in every catagorey:
