The office of the Cheshire County Attorney consists of the County Attorney and five Assistant County Attorneys.

The County Attorney and his Assistants are responsible for the review and subsequent prosecution of all felony cases in Cheshire County, with the exception of murder cases which are handled by the office of the New Hampshire Attorney General.

The attorneys oversee major felony investigations, working closely with police officers and investigators. When an investigation is completed, the Attorneys then review all reports, and a determination is made as to proper criminal charges to be brought, if any.

The Attorneys, upon request, assist police departments, as well as the State Police, in the prosecution of cases in the lower courts, such as Keene District Court, Jaffrey District Court, and Hinsdale Municipal Court.
