Rod J. Rosenstein, U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland


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.
