Office of the State's Attorney for Montgomery County, Maryland

  • MD

About Us

Our mission is to serve the public interest through fair and honest administration of justice by exercising responsibilities to: prosecute criminal violations in Montgomery County; educate the public on criminal-justice issues; train lawyers for future service; address inequality and promote fairness in the criminal justice system; insure access to the criminal justice system; promote professional relations with judges and attorneys; and further the efficient use of criminal-justice resources.

Prosecutors coordinate with school administrators and local law enforcement in an effort to identify problems before they manifest adverse consequences. Specialized prosecutions, such as domestic violence, child abuse, and elder abuse are also pursued by community prosecution teams, thereby enhancing the effectiveness of the State’s Ability to successfully prosecute those crimes.

As a result of Community Prosecution, the State’s Attorney’s Office is now part of an integrated and proactive law enforcement unit, where prosecutors operate outside of the courtroom environment bringing effective crime fighting solutions and increased security to Montgomery County’s residents.

The prosecutors who work in this Office are here to serve the public, and seek justice in an aggressive and fair manner on behalf of the victims of crime. We see ourselves as problem-solvers, not merely as case-processors.
