U.S Attorney's Office Districts of Guam & the Northern Mariana Islands

Contact Information:


The United States Attorneys serve as the nation’s principal litigators under the direction of the Attorney General. There are 93 United States Attorneys stationed throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands.
United States Attorneys are appointed by, and serve at the discretion of, the President of the United States, with advice and consent of the United States Senate.
One United States Attorney is assigned to each of the judicial districts, with the exception of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands where a single United States Attorney serves in both districts. Each United States Attorney is the chief federal law enforcement officer of the United States within his or her particular jurisdiction.

The United States Code delegates three statutory responsibilities to U.S. Attorneys under Title 28, Section 547:

• The prosecution of criminal cases brought by the Federal government;
• The prosecution and defense of civil cases in which the United States is a party; and 
• The collection of debts owed the Federal government which are administratively uncollectible.

United States Attorneys Offices prosecute violations of federal crimes occurring in our district.  Although criminal prosecutions are our most visible function, much of our caseload is handled by our civil division.

Some examples of federal criminal cases include terrorism, human trafficking, major drug trafficking operations, internet child pornography, interstate kidnappings, financial fraud, tax fraud, health care fraud, counterfeiting, civil rights, immigration crimes, organized crime and public corruption. 

Our civil division provides legal representation to the federal government, its agencies and employees in civil court actions.  Civil matters range from defending the federal government against a claim by an individual, a group of individuals, a corporation or even an entire state.  In addition, our monetary penalties unit serves as a collection agent for judgments taken on debts to the federal government, including delinquent loans and unpaid fines.
