United States Attorneys are also known as federal prosecutors. They represent the United States federal government in United States District Courts and in the United States Court of Appeals. U.S. Attorneys are members of the United States Department of Justice.


The United States Attorney in a district is the chief federal law enforcement officer and administrative head of the Office of the United States Attorney. They are prosecutors for the United States and also represent the district's interests in court. Attorneys supervise district offices with as many as 350 assistant U.S. attorneys, with as many as 350 more support personnel.[1][2]


Ninety-three United States Attorneys are stationed throughout the United States and its territories. One U.S. Attorney is assigned to each of the judicial districts, with the exception of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands where a single U.S. Attorney serves both districts.[3]


United States Attorneys are appointed by the President of the United States and serve four-year terms.[3]
