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). Contacting a district attorney can be a dangerous proposition. On the one hand, communication with a district attorney may be necessary in order to secure a favorable plea agreement, or to convince them that charges should be reduced or dropped altogether. On the other hand, the prosecutor is your opponant and communications with the prosecution must be carefully considered to avoid revealing your defense strategy or making admissions that could worsen your situation. An experienced defense attorney can communicate with the prosecution on your behalf.
