About Us

Who we are and what we do

The Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Association proudly represents the line staff Deputy District Attorneys of Contra Costa County, or well over 75 criminal prosecutors.

The DA’s Association puts public safety first by advocating on behalf of its criminal prosecutor membership, causes and candidates that make keeping the communities of Contra Costa County safe.

  • “We are grateful to the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors for recognizing that in order to achieve true public safety in our County, we must commit to fair compensation for criminal prosecutors.  Attracting – and keeping – the best prosecutors requires that our pay be competitive amongst the nine Bay Area Counties; the Board of Supervisors recognized that and we are appreciative of their efforts to help us maintain a strong District Attorney’s Office.”

    Aron DeFerrari, President
