District Attorney


Leading the largest prosecutorial agency in the state of New York outside New York City, Westchester County District Attorney Miriam E. Rocah ("Mimi") has dedicated her life to pursuing justice for victims, keeping our communities safe, and working for a fairer criminal justice system for all. Before she was elected as Westchester DA in November 2020, DA Rocah was Pace University School of Law's Distinguished Fellow in Criminal Justice, a legal analyst for MSNBC and NBC News, and an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Department of Justice in the Southern District of New York (SDNY) for 16½ years. She oversaw the prosecution of organized crime, gun traffickers, corrupt public officials, narcotics dealers, sex traffickers, and child predators. She is a recipient of the 2016 Women in Federal Law Enforcement Leadership Award. Prior to her career as a federal prosecutor, DA Rocah clerked for Judge John Gleeson of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, and Judge Chester J. Straub of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. She was also a litigation associate at the law firm Cravath, Swaine and Moore, and a paralegal at the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. A native of Chicago, Illinois, DA Rocah is a graduate of Harvard University and New York University School of Law. She is also an alum of the nationally-acclaimed NYC Urban Fellows Program, a public policy fellowship where she completed her program with the NYPD’s Deputy Commissioner for Legal Affairs.
