Our mission is to protect, defend, uphold and enforce the criminal laws of Florida in Miami Dade, the 11th Judicial Circuit of the United States; to provide leadership and criminal justice services with our agencies and partners. Public service is a public trust. For the Office of the State Attorney in Miami, this means that the public has committed to our care of the safety of our communities and the defense of our constitution.
To sustain that trust and to meet our resulting obligations, we must adhere strictly to our core values of: obedience to the laws of justice, respect, compassion, fairness, integrity, accountability, and leadership and diversity.
As State Attorney for Miami-Dade County I serve as head of the largest prosecutor’s office in the State and the fourth largest in the nation. Our office is integral to this community as we strive towards creating a safer place to live, work and raise our families.
