Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt has picked a former state Bar Association president to lead the division in Schmidt’s office that handles civil lawsuits.

 

Schmidt announced Monday that Dennis Depew has been appointed deputy attorney general.

 

Depew is from Neodesha in southeast Kansas and has had a private law practice for more than 30 years. He served as the Kansas Bar Association’s president in 2013-2014.

 

He also serves on Neodesha’s board of education. He was a member of the board from 1985 to 1999 and was re-elected again in 2009.

 

The division Depew leads is the principal defender for the state, its agencies or its employees when they are sued.

 

Depew replaces Jeff Chanay, who was promoted last year to chief deputy attorney general.
