About Daniel Fendley
A Tradition of Service
Daniel is running for District Judge to ensure our laws are carried out fairly, competently, and efficiently. These fundamental ideals of justice are central to his conscience, having been instilled by his parents and molded by their examples of service and sacrifice for the public good. With 18 years of legal experience focused on District Court practice, Daniel is the most qualified candidate to hold the office of District Judge.
Daniel began his legal career as an Assistant Jefferson County Attorney for two years prosecuting misdemeanor and felony cases. In 2006, he became the Assistant Oldham County Attorney where he handled all District Court matters. He undertook the prosecution of DUI cases and dramatically increased Oldham County’s conviction rate. From 2010 to 2014, Daniel held the #1 DUI conviction rate in Kentucky at 93.6%. From 2010 to 2016, he also prosecuted juvenile neglect and abuse cases in Oldham Family Court, successfully upholding the mission to protect children in our community. In civil practice, Daniel has represented the Commonwealth and individual clients in District Court cases to include adult guardianship, wills and probate, contracts, evictions, and collections.
After leaving the Oldham County Attorney’s office in 2016, Daniel opened a law firm and pursued educational franchising opportunities. Currently, he owns three Mathnasium Learning Centers in Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee and is a law partner in Fendley Conway, PLLC, located in LaGrange. His law firm focuses on criminal, probate and personal injury law.
Daniel and his wife, Irina, live on a farm in Oldham County where his family has been part of the community for seven generations. His father, John Fendley, was the Oldham County Attorney from 1989 to 2010 and his mother, Barbara Fendley, was a former principal of South Oldham High School. They dedicated their lives to helping others. Daniel looks forward to continuing this tradition of service to the community, and respectfully asks for your vote for District Judge.
