Welcome to the United States Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Georgia. We enforce the criminal laws of the United States, represent the United States' interest in civil proceedings, and manage programs for the community and state and local law enforcement to keep our district safe. Our mission is to serve you.  We protect your safety in the community by prosecuting terrorism, human trafficking, child exploitation, civil rights, and large-scale drug trafficking cases.  We aggressively investigate and prosecute corruption by those in public office, government service, and corporate boardrooms.  We preserve the integrity of federal programs that spend your tax dollars by litigating cases of fraud and theft from Medicare and other agencies.  Every day, our lawyers and support staff are inspired to promote the mission of the Justice Department and make our community and our country a better place to live. 

Our office priorities go beyond prosecuting criminals and litigating cases. We are always seeking to reach out and serve our communities.  We have partnered with the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles, the Georgia Department of Corrections, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, United States Probation Office, and Morehouse School of Medicine-Community Voices to create a monthly program for those being released from prison into our community to provide them with necessary services and reduce recidivism.  We have sponsored public summits on violent crime, prescription drug abuse, human trafficking, and other topics to bring together community members and law enforcement and find creative solutions to these problems. 

Our web site is designed to provide information about our office and its many components, community resources, victim-witness services.  Our News Section highlights some of our cases and provides you more insight into what happens in federal investigations and their final outcomes in our federal courts.  
Thank you for visiting our site.

Sally Quillian Yates, United States Attorney
