Georgia District Attorneys

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

A district attorney (DA) is the prosecuting officer of a criminal case (i.e., the official who represents the government in the prosecution of criminal offenses). Each state decides what to call these prosecutors and how to divide them up. In Georgia, they're called district attorneys, and they're divided by judicial circuits.

Georgia Attorney General

The Office of the Georgia Attorney General is created by the state's constitution and serves as the legal advisor for agencies, officers, and employees of the state government. Some of the specific duties of the Attorney General include:

  • Representing Georgia in all cases in the U.S. Supreme Court;
  • Initiating actions (civil or criminal) on behalf of the state when requested to do so by the governor; and
  • Preparing and reviewing contracts on behalf of the state of Georgia.
