Welcome from District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer
Greetings! Thank you to all the residents of Delaware County for placing your trust in me to ensure that justice is done every day, on behalf of all members of our diverse communities. My staff and I are honored to be able to work throughout the county investigating and prosecuting crime, supporting initiatives to reduce crime, supporting sensible alternatives to incarceration when appropriate, and collaborating with other agencies to bring about comprehensive changes that improve the quality of life for all who are touched by the criminal justice system.
Like many of you, I’ve lived almost my entire life here in Delaware County. I grew up in a union household, and worked hard over long years to put myself through college and law school. I began my legal career first as an intern and then as an assistant DA in this office. I was quickly assigned to the United States Department of Justice, and was soon hired as an Assistant US Attorney, where I worked for and later headed up a gun violence task force in one of Philadelphia’s most deadly neighborhoods.
As District Attorney for Delaware County, I will bring ethical, thoughtful leadership to the office. My staff will work full time on the cases and issues impact your daily lives with professionalism and integrity, balancing toughness, compassion and innovation in the work we do.
In the coming weeks and months, I will be reaching out to all corners of the county, to all municipalities, communities, and agencies, to listen, to learn and to use the resources of the District Attorney’s Office to deliver justice for all.
