Connecticut District Attorneys

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

District Attorneys represent the state and file criminal charges within their respective district, each consisting of one more or more counties (in most states). Some states have different titles for their District Attorneys, but they serve the same purpose. In Connecticut, for instance, they're called "State's Attorneys" and -- given the small size of the state -- each represents a number of cities and towns.

The following will help you learn about Connecticut's District Attorneys (or rather, State's Attorneys), in addition to contact information.

Connecticut Attorney General's Office

The Connecticut Attorney General (or simply "A.G."), elected by popular vote, is the state's highest ranking legal official. They represent the state in matters of litigation, enforce certain laws (such as those protecting consumers), and will sometimes file suits on behalf of state residents.
