Ryan Hyde - DA.jpg



“The District Attorney’s office has been struggling to attract and retain talented prosecutors because the DA has failed to address the increase in crime with clear guidance and useful prosecution standards.  By isolating our prosecutors in a West Chester ivory tower, we cut them off from understanding and effectively serving the community.  I will restructure the District Attorney’s Office, assigning cases in ways that give prosecutors perspective into the communities they serve.” ~ Ryan L. Hyde, Esq.


Mr. Hyde is a seasoned attorney with substantial courtroom experience.  His first job after law school was in commercial practice, but the calling to serve in court was too strong to stay with “paperwork law.” He joined the Bucks County DA’s Office, where he led investigations and prosecutions of high-profile drug, theft, and corruption cases.


Ryan moved to Chester County to raise his family and has been a resident here for fifteen years.  He practices criminal defense and personal injury from his West Chester, Pennsylvania office.  This experience has kept him sharp in the courtroom and provided him with unique insight into our community’s needs.  He has served on both sides of our criminal justice system; he has worked directly with judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys to see that justice is done. 


Ryan Hyde knows the ins and outs of the system.  His drive and experience will be crucial to hold people accountable, creating the conditions in which career criminals think twice about engaging in criminal enterprises here.  He has a longstanding record of fair, reasonable, and effective legal work.


The District Attorney’s office leads the county’s law enforcement community. It is essential that we have a DA who can work with our officers.  Mr. Hyde’s DA’s office will be proactive in a time in which big city crime is creeping into our communities.  His knowledge and experience are well suited to the protection of families, businesses, and our local communities, and the RCCC enthusiastically endorses Ryan Hyde for District Attorney.
