Charging Ahead and Working Together

Heather Kirka

With many telecommuting during the COVID-19 Stay at Home order, our staff is keeping the wheels of justice rolling. Many of the employees at MCAO have adjusted to the changes seamlessly and have found some to be both surprising and rewarding. Today, we’d like to introduce you to another one of our stellar attorneys who is keeping the trains moving full-steam ahead.

Heather Kirka, a Deputy County Attorney in the North Central Phoenix Bureau, is responsible for reviewing investigations and making charging decisions. Heather continues to be impressed and in awe of everything that can be accomplished remotely, “It’s pretty surreal to keep the wheels of justice moving while sitting at my dining room table,” says Heather. “I’m grateful to be able to continue to work during this time along with being able to help keep our community safe. I know I am in a fortunate position compared to others. I shouldn’t be, but I’m still constantly amazed at how people pull together in times of crisis. My co-workers and I are all physically far away from each other, yet still very much a team. The courts, the defense bar, and all the county entities have pulled together and gotten creative to try to keep this system moving while making the safety of this community a priority.” Heather and her other co-workers, can relate to a quote from Kristoff in the movie Frozen 2. He often says, “I’m here, what do you need?” and that is exactly what the MCAO team is doing.
