James B. Martin, District Attorney

The District Attorney's Office is charged with seeking justice, deciding when criminal charges will be filed, and fairly and efficiently prosecuting individuals charged with committing felonies and misdemeanors in Lehigh County. The District Attorney works closely with all police departments in the county and state and federal law enforcement officials on investigations and crime-fighting and public safety initiatives.

 My staff and I not only prosecute crimes but take an active role in anticipating future needs of the community and law enforcement personnel. Please use the links on this webpage to access and learn about the various initiatives and resources my office provides to the residents of Lehigh County.   I think you will find that there are numerous programs and services which not only endeavor to combat crime but also benefit individuals from the youngest to the oldest. 

All Lehigh County citizens have a stake in the prevention, investigation and prosecution of crimes. We share a vision of safe streets, neighborhoods and communities. My efforts and those of the dedicated individuals in my office are directed toward that common goal – working together to make Lehigh County a more secure place to live, work and play. 

JAMES B. MARTIN, District Attorney
