DPA's Phone Extensions

During normal business hours (8:30am - 5:00pm) DPA's Central Office telephones are answered by our receptionist, with callers directed to individuals or their voice mail boxes.  Outside normal business hours, an automated phone attendant directs calls made to the primary number, (502) 564-8006.  For calls answered by the automated attendant, to access the company directory callers may press "9".  Listed below are extension numbers and names for the major sections of DPA.  Make note of the extension number(s) you frequently call -- this will aid our receptionist's routing of calls and expedite your process through the automated attendant.  Should you have any questions about this system or expirience problems, please call Ann Harris or the Law Operations Division, ext. 136.
