What Does the State Attorney Do?


District Attorney, State Attorney, Statewide Prosecutor’s Office, U.S. Attorney, they all prosecute.

They do not arrest, the police do that. The prosecutor makes the decision on what charge to file by presenting their accusation to a grand jury, or by the filing of a document called the Prosecutor’s Information.

The indictment or Prosecutor’s Information, is the actual piece of paper that notifies you of which statute, what law, and what elements of proof, must be proven if the state seeks to convict you of a violation of criminal statute.

Every crime must be codified, that is, be in a written law. Criminal statutes laws are created by legislatures, not by judges.

Client Reviews
My experience with Mr. Behr and his staff was nothing short of phenomenal. I hope to not ever need representation again. But In the case I do. J would absolutely use Mr. Behr. I would also fully recommend him to anyone I know in need of representation. Jeff
When I travel throughout the world for business I can honestly say that I feel extremely comfortable knowing I can pick up the phone for guidance and know Mr. Behr will consistently have my back with a positive answer on the other end. I attribute my success with my business by having this honorable man on my team. Thomas
Mr. Behr has helped me in various cases. And each time has been more than successful than I expected! I would recommend him 100% to anyone with legal problems. Eve
He filed motion after motion until the judge finally dismissed my case. He even took it to another judge. The guy never stopped and let nothing stop him. He was all over the prosecutor and knew more law than the judge, it was super cool to watch the man work. He is the best lawyer in the county. Jose
