United States Attorney Zane David Memeger
United States Attorney Zane David Memeger represents the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. As United States Attorney, he has three statutory responsibilities: 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 the Federal government which are administratively uncollectible. Mr. Memeger returns to lead the office where he served as an Assistant United States Attorney from 1995 to 2006, investigating and prosecuting a variety of cases including organized crime, government fraud, financial institution fraud, violent crimes, narcotics, extortion, and commercial bribery. As a result of his earlier work on behalf of the office, he received several commendations from FBI Director Robert S. Mueller, III, for investigating and prosecuting cases that involved public corruption and violations of the Hobbs Act. After leaving the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Mr. Memeger returned to the private sector where he became a partner with a Philadelphia law firm. During that time, he published writings on the topics of off-label marketing in the pharmaceutical industry, corporate compliance and ethics, and procedures in corporate searches.
In 1991, Mr. Memeger received the Robert F. Kennedy Award for Public Service. He is a 1986 graduate of James Madison University and 1991 graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law.
