My name is Phil Parsons and I am the current Jones County Attorney. I was appointed County Attorney in April of 2009. Prior to being the Jones County Attorney, I was the Assistant Jones County Attorney for approximately two years. Prior to being in the Jones County Attorney’s Office, I was a private attorney with Kintzinger Law Firm in Dubuque, IA as a general practice attorney.
I am married to a wonderful wife, Jessica, and God has blessed us with two beautiful children. We currently reside outside of Monticello, and we have lived in Jones County for a little over 5 years.
Since being the Jones County Attorney, I have made a concerted effort to be more than an attorney behind a desk. I have chosen to engage with the community on its turf. I have done this by speaking at local organizations, city councils, and schools. I engage in these endeavors so as to be the attorney for the people of Jones County. I desire to hear the concerns of the people of Jones County and do what I can as County Attorney to assist in enhancing lives.
I further accomplish this by being the President of the Jones County Safe and Healthy Youth Coalition, co-founder of Ignite (Jones County Young Professionals Organization), and being heavily involved in my local church (New Life Community Church in Monticello, IA).
As Jones County Attorney I hope to do all I can, both in and out of my office, to move our community in a positive direction.
