Chipman Appointed as New Chief Deputy Prosecutor

January 3, 2012

01/04/11 Marshall County Prosecuting Attorney David R. Holmes announced Monday the appointment of E. Nelson Chipman, Jr. as Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney, effective March 1, 2012.

A lawyer since 1981, Chipman currently is serving as Plymouth City Attorney.  His resignation from that position becomes effective at the close of business on February 29.  Chipman has been a fulltime municipal lawyer for the last twelve years; and before that was in the private practice of law in partnership with his father.  Chipman was a public defender for several years, and was a deputy prosecuting attorney in Marshall County for over seven years from 1987 to 1994.

In accepting the appointment, Chipman stated, “This was a once in a career opportunity to return to my first love in the law.  Throughout my college and graduate school years I majored in criminology with a desire to make a positive difference in the vast field of criminal justice.  Trial work in the Prosecutor’s Office allows me the chance to again pursue that passion.”
