To the Citizens of the Northwestern District

The Northwestern District Attorney’s Office is dedicated to serving the people of Hampshire and Franklin counties and the town of Athol through rigorous, fair prosecutions and progressive prevention and intervention efforts.

The dedicated prosecutors and staff are committed to protecting the public and advocating for victims of crime. 

Although the primary responsibility of the Office is prosecuting crime, we also have a strong focus on progressive education and prevention efforts in the areas of domestic violence, child abuse, juvenile justice, elders and people with disabilities.

We are the law office of the People and are steadfast guardians of the rights and liberties of every citizen.   We will advocate for making our communities safer and stronger, while protecting civil rights and promoting social justice.

This website is designed to provide you with complete and updated information on the services we offer, the court system, office news and how to contact the various departments in our office. We hope you find it helpful.
