What is the difference between a U.S. Attorney and a state prosecutor?

A U.S. Attorney represents the United States government in federal cases that are heard in federal courts. State prosecutors represent the state in cases involving state law that are heard in state courts. Both state and federal law are involved in some cases, which can result in both the U.S. and the state prosecuting a case.

Can the Department of Justice represent me in my case?

The Department of Justice does not represent individuals in legal matters or lawsuits. The Department of Justice represents the U.S. or state government and their employees and agencies.

How does the Office of Justice Programs help local law enforcement?
