As your District Attorney, I am responsible for the safety and well-being of all the residents of Berkshire County. My staff of fifty-one includes twenty experienced, able Assistant District Attorneys who share my commitment to honoring our sacred public trust: to seek justice – by holding the guilty accountable while protecting the innocent and ensuring dignity for victims and their families. Justice is served only when we act with integrity and professionalism, and in a manner that is both fair and even-handed.
We are joined in that effort by twelve equally experienced Victim Assistance Advocates and a dedicated support staff that helps us to prosecute over seven thousand cases yearly in the county’s five courts–Superior, Juvenile and the three District Courts.
The effective preservation of public safety demands the committed, informed involvement of our local law enforcement agencies as well as the community, and so legal education, training and community outreach are also integral parts of our agenda.
I hope this website will help explain the many and varied ways my Office carries out the important work that we do.
