Our Mission Statement

The Office of the Washoe County District Attorney is committed to achieving justice and protecting the welfare of our community. 

We aggressively prosecute criminal cases, with a priority on violent crimes and repeat offenders, while preserving the rights and dignity of the victims of crime and their families. 

We professionally represent the Board of County Commissioners and all other County Agencies in legal matters.  We protect children by ensuring the timely and sufficient payment of child support and the placement of those that are abused and neglected in a permanent, safe, and stable environment.

The work of this Office is for the people of Washoe County and it will be conducted with the highest standard of integrity and professionalism without prejudice, bias, or improper influence.
