The Civil Division is a unit of the District Attorney’s Office that handles civil issues and litigation for Washington and St. Tammany Parishes in claims directly against the District Attorney and his staff and claims and legal issues involving State public offices, agencies, departments, boards and commissions.  The Civil Division further provides legal services and advises the Parish President, the Parish Council and Parish offices, agencies, departments and state boards and commissions domiciled in St. Tammany and Washington Parish. The Civil Division of the DA’s Office does not handle private civil matters for individuals in our Parishes.  You will need to hire a private attorney.
