District of Maryland

About the District

Our United States Attorney’s Office serves nearly six million residents throughout the state of Maryland. From the Atlantic Ocean to the Chesapeake Bay, from Annapolis to Baltimore, from Fort McHenry to Sharpsburg, from the flatlands of the Eastern Shore to the summits of the Appalachian mountains in the west, Maryland is rich in history and in cultural and environmental diversity.

The U.S. Attorney's Office works cooperatively with our partners in federal, state and local law enforcement to promote the rule of law, punish criminals, deter crime and safeguard government property. We seek to inspire public trust and confidence by adhering to the highest ethical and professional standards as we pursue justice in each case.

Our 98 Assistant United States Attorneys and 73 support personnel are committed to excellence, integrity and achievement. Employees are organized into Civil, Criminal and Administrative Divisions and based in two offices, the Northern Division in Baltimore and the Southern Division in Greenbelt.

We are proud to serve the citizens of Maryland and devoted to enhancing the quality of life in our state.
