Eastern District of Virginia


The United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia serves more than 6 million residents living in Northern Virginia, Richmond, Tidewater, and surrounding communities.

As part of the U.S. Department of Justice, we are responsible for virtually all federal litigation in the District. This includes criminal prosecutions for violations of federal law, civil lawsuits by and against the government, and actions to collect judgments and restitution on behalf of victims and taxpayers.

We are determined to make our communities safer by working with law enforcement agencies and community partners to reduce crime through enforcement, prevention and community outreach.
