Assistant District Attorney
The Westchester County District Attorney's Office has opportunities for attorneys and law school students to join the largest prosecutors' office in New York State north of New York City.
After joining the office, attorneys are encouraged to explore the various divisions and bureaus each practicing different aspects of criminal law. This allows attorneys to pursue the areas they are most interested in and rewards good performance and years of service to the office.
The office endeavors to retain a complete listing of interested applicants should vacancies arise. An invitation for an interview should not necessarily be read as an indication that positions are available. Generally about ten openings become available each year.
The interview process itself is conducted in multiple levels. To facilitate the interview process, please bring a writing sample and lists of references to the initial interview. If an applicant is favorably reviewed and a position opening is likely in the foreseeable future, a second level interview is scheduled. This level is considerably more intensive. It generally consists of an hour.
Individuals, who accept offers of employment from this Office commit to a three-year employment period. During this period most assistants begin their careers in the Office in the Appeals and Special Litigation Division. Assignment to that Division is mandatory for recent law school graduates. Over time, assessments are made of assistants and reassignment to other divisions may be made depending on the needs of the Office.
The District Attorney’s Office is an equal opportunity employer and encourages applicants that reflect the diversity of our community. Because we are a community-oriented office, assistant district attorneys become actively involved in our crime prevention and community outreach programs.
