Introduction of New Director of NDAA's National Center for Prosecution of Child Abuse

In October 2014, we welcomed Mary-Ann Burkhart back to NDAA as the director of the National Center for Prosecution of Child Abuse.

Mary-Ann began her legal career as an assistant state attorney in Miami-Dade County, Florida. As an assistant under the Honorable Janet Reno, Ms. Burkhart specialized in domestic violence and child abuse cases.

In 1997, Ms. Burkhart joined the staff of the National Center for Prosecution of Child Abuse as a senior attorney. From 1997 through 2003, she traveled worldwide and taught extensively on all aspects of child physical and sexual abuse and child homicide cases. As a senior attorney at NCPCA, she also published numerous articles and book chapters on various issues relating to investigating and prosecuting cases of child physical and sexual abuse, as well as issues relating to child victims. Her last project as a senior attorney at NCPCA was editing and completing work on the third edition of Investigation and Prosecution of Child Abuse, in which she also authored two chapters.

In late 2003, Ms. Burkhart went back into the courtroom as a homicide prosecutor and then as training director at the Office of the State’s Attorney for Baltimore City, Maryland. As training director, she was responsible for the training and mentoring programs for the over 200 attorneys in the office. Additionally, she continued to train nationally on issues related to child physical and sexual abuse and neglect. She also works as the faculty advisor to the ChildFirst Maryland course, a five-day forensic interviewing course for child victims and witnesses. In 2008 Ms. Burkhart authored Maryland’s Response to Human Trafficking: A New Statute for New Times, which was published in the Maryland Bar Journal. In 2010, Ms. Burkhart took her expertise to the Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney’s Office, where she specialized in child abuse cases and vulnerable adult and elder abuse cases.

Mary-Ann graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh and Barry University and received her Juris Doctor degree from the University of Miami School of Law. For her work and commitment in the area of child abuse, she received the 2001 Professional Achievement Award from Barry University.

NDAA Receives $200,000 Donation





NDAA is grateful to the Wayne A. Jordon and Sandra A. Grisham family for their generous donation of $200,000 in support of NDAA trial advocacy and other national training programs. The Honorable Michelle Lujan Grisham, U.S. Representative and family member, presented the NDAA with this check in memory of Wayne A. Jordon, a New Mexico prosecutor who died in the line of duty. NDAA is committed to creating an endowment named for Wayne A. Jordon to support NDAA’s dedication to high quality national training for state and local prosecutors.
