California District Attorneys

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

State District Attorneys (or "D.A.s") are responsible for filing state criminal charges against suspects within their designated district -- typically one or more counties. When the D.A. files the "information" or a grand jury decides to indict a suspect, the state's criminal case formally begins. In California, each county comprises a district.

If you're negotiating a plea bargain or have other valid reasons to contact the D.A.'s office, it's best to do so with the advice and counsel of your attorney. After all, you don't want to give away your defense strategy or reveal anything that can be used against you at trial.

Below you'll find information about the California Attorney General and California District Attorneys, as well as contact information.

California Attorney General

The California Attorney General (or "A.G.") is the highest ranking prosecutor and law enforcement officer in the most populous state in the union. While District Attorneys file criminal charges within their respective district, the A.G. represents the state in matters of litigation and enforces consumer protection laws, among other duties.
