Attorney and prosecutor Brandon Pelizzari will join the Seventh Judicial District Attorney General’s Office in Clinton on December 1. He will be an assistant district attorney general.
“Brandon is an experienced attorney and prosecutor,” District Attorney General Dave Clark said in a press release. “I am thrilled to add his experience and talent to the office.”
Pelizzari joins the Clinton office after having been a prosecutor of driving under the influence violations in the Eighth Judicial District, mostly assigned to Campbell County, for the past several years, the press release said.
“In addition to his professional skill, Brandon brings familiarity with our community,” Clark said. “As a native Anderson Countian who lives in our community, he will literally be coming home.”
Pelizzari is originally from Clinton and graduated from Clinton High School, and he is the son of Barry and Sharon Pelizzari. He attended Middle Tennessee State University for his undergraduate studies and received his doctorate degree from the Nashville School of Law.
He practiced privately in Oak Ridge and then prosecuted for the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services in Clinton before becoming a prosecutor in the Eighth Judicial District.
In the Seventh Judicial District, Pelizzari is expected to prosecute all types of criminal offenses in the general sessions courts in Clinton and Anderson County, the press release said.
“It is truly an honor to come home and serve the Seventh Judicial District and be mentored by my friend General Clark,” Pelizzari said.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
