New York District Attorneys

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

The District Attorney (or "D.A.") is the prosecuting attorney representing the state within their respective district. New York State has a D.A. for each of its 62 counties. A criminal case begins when the D.A. has either filed charges on their own or a grand jury has made the decision to indict a given suspect. If you're involved in a criminal matter in New York State, it's in your best interests to know who your prosecutor is and how the process works.

Contacting the New York District Attorney

If you're the defendant in a criminal case, there may be instances where it makes sense to communicate with the D.A.'s office. For instance, you may be offered a plea deal that could reduce your sentence or eliminate it entirely. But it's always best to work with an attorney and -- in most cases -- allow your counsel to serve as the intermediary. After all, they'll have experience in these matters and may even know the prosecutor personally.
