Nearly 50 lawyers have left the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office in less than five months, continuing a dramatic drain of staff that saw around 70 attorneys decamp between January 2021 and November 2021.

Between Nov. 1, 2021, and March 16, 2022, 47 assistant district attorneys departed from the office, leaving 282 remaining ADAs, according to information obtained through a Right-to-Know Law request. (Three of the 47 ADAs left in the time frame of the 72 departures reported by The Legal between January and early November 2021).
