Relatively frivolous question about California DA's offices

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Apr 19, 2011 3:48 pm

I know this is going to vary by office, but I'm wondering - do fairly junior Deputy District Attorneys have their own offices from the beginning? Or do they start in cubicles and move to offices at some point, and if so, how far along? Information on any of the following counties would be especially appreciated: San Francisco, Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento. Thanks!

When my friend interned (ug internship) at the Los Angeles DA last summer, all the lawyers had their own offices. Only clerks/paralegals/secretaries/investigators had cubicles -- but on the other hand she didn't meet any who were literally in their first year, so it's possible that they are relegated to cubes.
fwiw, she worked downtown but her building was a couple of blocks away from the main building (w/organized crime, etc).

LA Country DA's Office (not downtown branch) all the DA's had their own offices. Best offices, i.e. with windows or extra size, went by seniority. There were cubicles for secretaries etc.

In LA, if you are assigned to one of the non-downtown courthouse offices then you will be in a cubicle or a very small office shared with 2 other DAs. No windows.
