Welcome to the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Louisiana. The U.S. Attorney, Walt Green, is the chief federal law enforcement official in the district. He and his staff are responsible for enforcing the federal criminal laws, representing the U.S. government in civil proceedings, and managing programs for the community and state and local law enforcement to keep our district safe.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office remains ever vigilant against terrorism, while also prosecuting public corruption, major frauds, human trafficking, child exploitation, civil rights violations, drug trafficking, and various other federal crimes. We also protect the interests of the taxpayers by collecting debts owed to the U.S. government and representing the interests of the U.S. government in civil matters. Finally, our office priorities extend beyond handling criminal and civil cases to supporting various outreach programs designed to prevent recidivism and violence.

Our web site is designed to provide information about our office and its many components, community resources, and victim-witness services. Our news section highlights some of our cases and provides information about what happens in federal cases. Thank you for visiting our site.
