United States Attorneys

Offices of the United States Attorneys is a division of the U.S. Department of Justice.

93 United States Attorneys are appointed by the President and charged with ensuring “that the laws be faithfully executed”.

Each U.S. Attorney appointed is the chief federal law enforcement officer in their designated district and can be involved in civil litigation representing the United States.

Judiciary Act of 1789 creates the role of the United States Attorneys. In response to the mandates of the Constitution, Congress enacted the Judiciary Act, redirecting the President to appoint in each district.  President George Washington nominated the first U.S. Attorneys on September 24, 1789.

United States Attorneys have three (3) statutory responsibilities under Title 28, Section 547 of the United States Code:

  1. the prosecution of criminal cases broght by the Federal Government;
  2. the prosecution and defense of civil cases in which the United States is a party; and
  3. the collection of debts owed the Federal Government which are administratively noncollectable.

Each of the 93 U.S. Attorneys exercises wide discretion in the use of their resources to further the priorities of the local jurisdictions and needs of their communities.
