Daniel A. Saunders
Executive Assistant District Attorney
The Major Crimes Division is responsible for the prosecution of the most serious violent crimes committed in Queens County. The Division includes the Domestic Violence Bureau, Homicide Investigations Bureau, Homicide Trials Bureau and Special Victims Bureau.
The Division is staffed with some of the most seasoned and experienced prosecutors, who have amassed a wide range of experience in dealing with every aspect of a case. Assistants in the Major Crimes Division take an active role in the handling of their assignments, entering cases right from their inception, working hand-in-hand with the police in developing leads, obtaining evidence and taking cases through indictment and trial. Such handling of these important cases by experienced assistant district attorneys thoroughly familiar with the facts and circumstances of the case has helped us achieve enormous success.
