Mission Statement

The mission of the United States Attorney's Office, Southern District of Florida, is to enforce and defend the laws of the United States of America through the prosecution of criminal cases brought by the Federal government; the prosecution and defense of civil cases in which the United States is a party; and the collection of debts owed to the Federal government that are administratively uncollectible.

The United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida is the chief federal law enforcement officer for the District. The Southern District of Florida encompasses a geographical area of approximately 15,197 square miles extending south to Key West, north to Sebastian and west to Sebring. The Southern District includes the counties of Miami-Dade, Broward, Monroe, Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, Okeechobee and Highlands.

The United States Attorney's Office (USAO) has a staff of approximately 222 Assistant United States Attorneys (AUSAs) and 170 support personnel. The main office is located in Miami, Florida. There are three staffed branch offices located in Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Fort Pierce, and one unstaffed branch office located in Key West. There is also a High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) office in West Miami-Dade and Broward, and a District-Wide Health Care Fraud Facility in Miramar.

It is the policy of the Office of the United States Attorney, Southern District of Florida, to provide equal opportunity in employment on the basis of merit and to prohibit discrimination because of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability (physical or mental), sexual orientation, status as a parent, or protected genetic information. Our goal is to continue to promote the full realization of equal employment opportunity through a continuing affirmative employment program that will eliminate discrimination based on factors irrelevant to job performance.
