Pursuing Justice. Prosecuting Criminals. Protecting the Community.
Pima County Attorney's Message
It is an honor and a privilege to represent you as your County Attorney. My staff and I work hard to justify the confidence you have placed in us. I am pleased to report that our Office has consistently excelled in all performance measures and regularly surpasses the performance of other public law offices.

With public safety as my top priority, I have placed primary emphasis on vigorous prosecution and defendant accountability, giving special attention to helping victims, limiting plea bargaining, prosecuting crimes against children, preventing juvenile crime, and increasing efficiency and effectiveness by promoting the careful use of taxpayer dollars.

The Pima County Attorney’s Office continues to maintain the lowest plea bargaining rate in Arizona. Focusing on violent and potentially violent crimes, we have significantly increased the rate at which those cases are taken to trial. We do that in order to hold violent predators and dangerous repeat offenders fully accountable for their crimes, seeking to ensure that they receive the maximum possible prison time permitted by law.

We take seriously our mission to protect the public safety. Through the efforts of our dedicated employees and through our collaborative working relationships with other county departments, with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies, and with the public and private sectors alike, we continually strive to make Pima County safer and to improve the quality of life in our community.
