I want to work in your office. Do you have job openings? What is the pay scale?

Our office occasionally has job openings. You should check the main Eaton County website for current employment postings. Other Prosecuting Attorney offices may have career opportunities for attorneys, clerical staff, victim services coordinators, investigators, etc. Check out the Michigan Prosecuting Attorneys Coordinating Council website for recent openings. The U.S. Attorney's office and the Department of Justice occasionally post job openings, too.

Nobody becomes a Prosecutor for the pay. The rewards are in making a difference in the community, seeing that justice is done, and speaking for victims of crime. The pay scale for Prosecutors and Assistant Prosecuting Attorneys (APAs) varies from county to county. In Eaton County, APA salaries range from around $40,000 to $80,000.
