District Attorney

Official seal of the District AttorneyWelcome!

The mission of the Rockland County District Attorney's Office is to seek justice and enhance public safety for all residents by fairly, ethically, aggressively and efficiently prosecuting those who violate the law, and by working to prevent crime. While ensuring that offenders are held accountable for their conduct, we are also committed to hearing the voices of crime victims and making certain their experience with the criminal justice system is positive.

I am very proud of our dedicated prosecutors, investigators, victim advocates and support staff who diligently serve our community each day. Our efforts to achieve justice will continue to make Rockland County a safe place to live, work and raise a family. 

We hope you learn more about us and what we do by exploring our newly redesigned website.
