Southern District of Georgia
About the Southern District of Georgia
Welcome to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Georgia, which encompasses 43 counties located in the southeastern region of the state. The Office prosecutes cases involving violations of federal laws, and represents the interests of the United States government and its agencies in criminal and civil matters. The Office investigates and prosecutes a broad array of criminal conduct of every conceivable magnitude, even when the conduct arises in distant places. Today, the Office is at the forefront of many important areas of criminal law enforcement, including terrorism, white collar and cyber crime, mortgage fraud, public corruption, gang violence, organized crime, international narcotics trafficking and civil rights violations. Similarly, the Office litigates among the most complex and significant civil cases the Department of Justice handles - from large affirmative civil fraud cases to cases in the environmental, health care, immigration and bankruptcy areas, as well as cases implicating classified information.
The Southern District of Georgia is home to Hunter Army Airfield, Fort Stewart, Fort Eisenhower (formerly Fort Gordon), and Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay. We are headquartered in Savannah, have a fully staffed branch office in Augusta, and have four unstaffed branches in Waycross, Brunswick, Statesboro and Dublin, Georgia.
Throughout its history, this Office has distinguished itself as one of the nation's premier legal institutions, successfully prosecuting groundbreaking and historic cases. Those who have served in the Southern District include U. S. Attorneys, federal judges and well-respected members of prominent private law firms.
