Each month, the Mobile County District Attorney’s Office highlights the men and women who work daily to fight for justice for victims of crime. This month we would like to introduce you to Assistant District Attorney Clay Rossi. The Shreveport, LA, native was hired in 2018 as our White Collar Prosecutor. His goal is to help District Attorney Ashley Rich revive the White Collar Unit and to serve White Collar crime victims whose complicated situations straddle the line between civil matters and criminal conduct. Prior to working for our office, he was a civil litigation attorney and worked in publishing and public policy in Washington, D.C. The best piece of advice he has received is, “What you cannot turn to good, you must at least make as little bad as you can.” He believes that every case he works on is important because every case is influential in the lives of the people he is trying to assist.
