The Office of the United States Attorney for the District of Maryland was established by the federal Judiciary Act of 1789.
Under the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Attorney and Assistant U.S. Attorneys are the federal government's principal trial lawyers. For the District of Maryland, the U.S. Attorney's Office prosecutes all federal criminal cases, represents the federal government in civil litigation, and collects those debts owed the federal government which are administratively uncollectible.
The Office of the United States Attorney for the District of Maryland consists of two geographic divisions. The Southern Division covers Calvert, Charles, Prince George's, Montgomery and St. Mary's counties. The remaining Maryland counties are included in the Northern Division. The Office also has three functional divisions: Administrative; Civil; and Criminal. The Criminal Division is further divided into five sections: Fraud and Corruption; Major Crimes, such as civil rights abuses, child exploitation, identity fraud and environmental violations; Narcotics and Organized Crime; National Security; and Violent Crimes.
The U.S. Attorney is appointed to a four-year term by the President of the United States with the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate. Assistant U.S. Attorneys are appointed by the U.S. Attorney General for indefinite terms.
On September 17, 2001, the U.S. Attorney General directed each U.S. Attorney to establish an Anti-Terrorism Advisory Council. By 2006, over 225 agencies had joined the Anti-Terrorism Advisory Council of Maryland. They include federal, State and local agencies working in law enforcement, public health, and emergency planning and response, as well as the military, intelligence, and private sectors. The Council works to combat terrorism in Maryland through four components: intelligence and information sharing; agressive investigation and prosecution; emergency preparedness and response; and training.

In February 2009, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland established the Maryland Mortgage Fraud Task Force. Through the Task Force, local, State, and federal regulatory and investigative agencies will coordinate mortgage fraud enforcement actions, identify cases for criminal investigation, and work to secure resources to prosecute perpetrators. The Task Force will develop more efficient procedures for mortgage fraud referrals; ways to avoid duplication of effort among agencies in open cases; and a training program for State and federal prosecutors and investigators. For victims of mortgage fraud and related crimes, the Task Force also is to pursue measures to secure restitution, including asset forfeiture.
