The San Francisco District Attorney's Office is one of the premier law enforcement organizations in the United States. Our mission is to collaborate with the City’s diverse communities and law enforcement agencies to make San Francisco one of the safest cities in America. Our office engages in public education and crime prevention efforts while maintaining the traditional role of investigating, charging, and prosecuting all criminal violations occurring within the City and County of San Francisco. The unparalleled opportunities for challenging, meaningful, and sophisticated work have consistently drawn top candidates to our office over the years.
Assistant District Attorneys’ are given substantial responsibility early in their careers and generally start in the Criminal Division handling various cases. Opportunities to handle more serious and complex cases are afforded as more experience is gained. Additionally, unique opportunities are afforded to Assistant District Attorneys who show great interest or possess the specialized experience to work within the Office’s White-Collar Criminal Division. This Division is comprised of experienced attorneys who prosecute white collar crime such as economic fraud, public corruption, consumer and environmental crimes. Unlike many other prosecution agencies, we prosecute felony cases vertically, meaning that one Assistant District Attorney will handle a case from its arraignment to final disposition, allowing for more meaningful interaction and attention paid to victims and the pursuit of justice.
With the diverse nature of our community, the ability to work with people of different backgrounds is critical in the work we do. The Office of the District Attorney proactively seeks to recruit, retain and promote legal staff that reflect the diversity of the community served.
