Diana Moers, an Evansville native, currently handles a range of federal and state litigation cases on behalf of the State of Indiana. She seeks to apply these skills and experiences in her role as Vanderburgh County Prosecutor.
Diana Moers serves as section chief for the government litigation section of the Indiana Attorney General. In this role, she oversees the State’s attorneys handling a range of federal and state litigation cases. In addition, Diana assists the Solicitor General as needed.
Before joining the Office of Attorney General, Diana served as Executive Director of the Indiana board for depositories under State Treasurer Kelly Mitchell. In her role as Executive Director, Diana worked with the Board (which includes the Governor’s office, the State Auditor, Treasurer, Director of the State Board of Accounts, Director of the Indiana Department of Finance, as well as Bank and Credit Union CEOs), to ensure the safety of Indiana’s public funds in the event of bank fraud or failure.

Additionally, Diana was an enforcement attorney for the division – a branch of the Indiana Secretary of State’s office charged with overseeing the state’s investment and financial protection industry. Upon consultation with local prosecutor’s offices, Diana was sworn-in as a special prosecutor within multiple jurisdictions to handle cases developed by the Indiana Securities Division.
Before returning to her home state of Indiana, Diana, who is licensed in Illinois, served as an assistant state’s attorney in the Will County State’s Attorney’s office in Joliet, Illinois, where she handled a range of misdemeanor and felony criminal cases and discovered her passion for trial work. Prior to her position as an assistant state attorney, Diana worked for two Illinois law firms as an associate attorney and assistant prosecutor.

Prior to that, Diana attended Indiana University in Bloomington and earned a bachelor of arts degree in political science. She is a graduate of North High School in Evansville and won the region’s first state policy debate championship.
Diana is happy to move home with her husband Kyhle. Diana’s family roots in Evansville began in the early 1900s when her family arrived in Evansville and worked as talented brick-layers. Diana enjoys spending time with her friends and family, staying active by swimming and weight lifting, and rescuing dogs.
