William J. Ihlenfeld, II, the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of West Virginia, welcomes you to the website for the Northern District of West Virginia. Our website is designed to provide information about our office, including press releases, helpful links, and contact information for various law enforcement agencies, to the citizens we serve in a user-friendly manner.

United States Attorneys (also known as federal prosecutors and, historically, as United States District Attorneys) represent the federal government in United States district court and United States court of appeals. There are 93 U.S. Attorneys stationed throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands.

U.S. Attorneys and their offices are part of the Department of Justice. U.S. Attorneys receive oversight, supervision and administrative support services through the Justice Department's Executive Office for United States Attorneys.

Thank you for visiting
