Why should you become a District Attorney (D.A.)? Every city in the United States needs a prosecutor, someone who is devoted to upholding the constitution, protecting the public, and prosecuting criminal behavior when it occurs in their district. Large metropolitan areas typically have a considerable number of special units that hire D.A.s to concentrate on despicable crimes such as homicide, rape, and domestic violence.

 
District Attorney works on prosecuting criminals
 

One of the most rewarding benefits of beginning a career in the office of a D.A. is the valuable experience gained at trial. Fresh attorneys, who recently graduated from law school, might start doing backup work at an established law firm, while an attorney working in the office of a D.A. will quickly be exposed to the inside of a courtroom.

Cases with statewide bearing are generally prosecuted by the State Attorney General Offices. Attorneys who prosecute at the state level usually operate with local D.A. offices. Each state also has a State Attorney General's office, and they are responsible for representing the states interest in court.

There are also federal prosecutors who work for the Department of Justice and they have many offices across the United States of America. There are 90 U.S. attorneys who coordinate federal prosecutions and must report to the highest cop of the land, the Attorney General.

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
