Legal positions with the Prosecutor’s Office include attorney positions and non-attorney positions. Many new attorneys join the Prosecutor’s Office directly from law school, while others come to the office from lateral positions or after clerking. New Assistant Prosecuting Attorneys(APAs) often begin in the juvenile division prior to moving into the general felony unit or another specialized unit. Direct hire positions also occur in the Child Support Enforcement Division and the Children and Family Services Division. Positions for experienced attorneys can open in any division.
