Welcome to the District of Rhode Island


           Thank you for visiting the United States Attorney’s “Virtual” Office for the District of Rhode Island. We have come a long way since 1789, when the Office was first established! We hope that you find our website both informative and helpful. Here you can find out more about who we are, the kind of work that we do on behalf of the citizens of Rhode Island, and how we are organized to complete that work. You can also find information about United States Department of Justice initiatives, answers to frequently asked questions, and links to other law enforcement related information.
           As a native of this small but great State, I am honored to serve as the United States Attorney for the District of Rhode Island. The kinds of cases we handle vary widely, but the ultimate goal is the same in all: to do justice.
