Andrew M. Luger was formally nominated to be the United States Attorney for the District of Minnesota on November 21, 2013, unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate on February 12, 2014, and sworn in on February 14, 2014.

From 1989 – 1992, U.S. Attorney Luger served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Eastern District of New York and from 1992 – 1995, in the District of Minnesota, where he prosecuted a wide variety of narcotics and violent crimes, as well as complex white collar frauds. In 1995, Mr. Luger joined Greene Espel in Minneapolis, where he was a partner until 2014.

During his years in private practice, Mr. Luger was sought after by public officials to conduct investigations into various matters of public importance.

In 2008, at the request of St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman, Mr. Luger co-chaired a review of law enforcement’s security operations during the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul.

In 2009, Mr. Luger was appointed by the Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety to lead the investigation of the Metro Gang Strike Force, which uncovered a series of problems with the unit. On his recommendation, the Metro Gang Strike Force was permanently disbanded.

In 2012, Mr. Luger was asked by Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak to lead a review the city’s youth violence prevention program.

Shortly after his swearing-in as United States Attorney, Mr. Luger set his priorities for the office, which include prosecuting heroin and other drug trafficking, human trafficking, gang violence, identity theft and white collar fraud, and terrorism.

He graduated magna cum laude from Georgetown University Law Center (1985), and earned his bachelor's degree from Amherst College, summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa (1981).
