This is the entry level position as a Deputy District Attorney. Entry level attorneys will be responsible for the prosecution of traffic and misdemeanor offenses, including DUIs and domestic violence cases. As a Deputy District Attorney I, you will be assigned to a courtroom to cover all aspects of the prosecution of cases, including pre-trial negotiations, motions practice, hearings, and trials. Positions in this class will perform most of the duties required of District Attorney II, but are not expected to function at the same skill level and usually exercise less independent direction and judgment on matters related to work procedures and methods. Work is usually supervised while in progress and fits a structured and established pattern. Generally, changes in procedures or exceptions are explained in detail as they arise.

An offer of employment is contingent upon the successful completion of a pre-employment drug screen.
