The United States Attorney's Office is responsible for representing the federal government in virtually all of the litigation involving the United States in the Northern District of California, including all criminal prosecutions for violations of federal law, civil lawsuits against the government, and actions to collect judgments and restitution on behalf of victims and taxpayers.
The Northern District of California stretches from the Monterey Coast in the south to California's northern border with Oregon, and from the Pacific Ocean in the west nearly to Sacramento in the east. We have three major metropolitan areas: San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose. The total population of our district is more than 7.3 million people.
