Alabama District Attorneys

Created by FindLaw's team of attorney writers and editors.

Criminal charges are filed by the state's District Attorney (or "D.A."), representing one or more counties. Some states use other terms, such as "State's Attorney" or "County Attorney," and they're often referred to simply as "prosecutors." Alabama has 41 judicial districts, each representing one or up to five counties. Sometimes it makes sense to contact the D.A.'s office, but this should be done with the advice and counsel of an attorney.
