Jack McCoy grew up in the Midwest and moved to New York to attend New York University Law School. A charismatic and tough attorney who possesses great oratory skill and knowledge of the law, McCoy treats the cases he prosecutes like a gigantic chess game. Although he appears to be all work and no play, in the past he has had several affairs with assistants, one of whom he married and had a daughter with before they divorced. Outside of the courtroom, he spends his time on his Harley.
Jack McCoy brings 24 years of experience with him as he is appointed Executive Assistant District Attorney by Adam Schiff (Steven Hill) in the Season 5 premiere episode "Second Opinion."
Following the 17th season (2006–2007), Jack McCoy became District Attorney, taking over from Arthur Branch (Fred Thompson). McCoy's appearance on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit on the November 13, 2007 episode "Blinded", marked his first appearance in the Law & Order universe as District Attorney. The replacement for his former position is Michael Cutter (Linus Roache), a prosecutor with a penchant for recklessness not unlike McCoy's own in his younger days.
