Welcome to the District Attorneys Association of the State of New York
My name is Scott D. McNamara. I started my career as a prosecutor in 1992 and was elected as Oneida County District Attorney in 2007. I am proud of my tenure as a District Attorney and have spearheaded many initiatives including an economic crime unit, a conviction integrity unit, a second chance program and the addition of a community liaison to my office.
It is truly an honor to serve as President of this respected and honorable organization. We have a lot to be proud of as prosecutors and we do great work to improve the fairness of our criminal justice system. We have drug courts, domestic violence courts, veterans programs and numerous alternatives to incarceration programs. I am proud to lead these efforts and will do my best to carry forward and build upon the outstanding body of work of my predecessors, who sought first to better our profession so that the criminal justice system in turn would be enhanced.
