Summary of Department's responsibilities:
The Office of the District Attorney is required to prosecute all violations of Pennsylvania Criminal Law within the Northampton County's geographic boundaries. Furthermore, the District Attorney's Office advises local and Pennsylvania State Police officers in investigating and charging criminal conduct, litigating these cases at all stages through preliminary hearing, trial or guilty pleas and sentencing before the Northampton County Court of Common Pleas, as well as post-verdict proceeding and appeals.

This office also complies with a variety of victim/witness services as mandated in Pennsylvania. There is a victim-witness advocate to ensure victim's needs are meet and to help reduce the trauma of prosecution. This office also employs a Child Abuse Investigation Coordinator to collaborate efforts between systems for families and children involved in this process. Additionally, this office has recently started a Domestic Violence Unit to handle the special needs of victims and families who encounter this type of abuse.
