The United States Attorneys’ Office in Springfield is staffed by 8 assistant U.S. Attorneys (AUSAs) who investigate and prosecute federal crimes in western Massachusetts. One AUSA also represents the federal government in civil cases.
The U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts represents the entire state and its 6.8 million residents. Of the 94 U.S. Attorneys’ Offices throughout the United States and its territories, the District of Massachusetts is one of the busiest, prosecuting a broad range of cases including national security, white collar crime, public corruption, cybercrime, narcotics and money laundering, organized crime and gang violence, and civil rights violations. In addition, the Office’s Civil Division tackles complex cases ranging from large affirmative health care fraud to bankruptcy.
Student interns assist the AUSAs with a variety of important tasks, including research and preparation of legal documents in both civil and criminal cases. The interns also have the opportunity to participate in many aspects of the federal criminal justice process.
