Welcome

This is my fifth term but my pledge remains the same — to uphold the values and integrity of this office. As your county attorney, my goal is to bring justice to crime victims and protect the 1.2 million citizens of Hennepin County.

There's much work to do and with your help and support, we'll get the job done. We're taking a strong stand against juvenile crime, educational neglect and truancy, gang violence, identity theft, livability crimes, gun violence and crimes against seniors and vulnerable adults.

Join us in protecting the safety of our community by reporting crimes and working with law enforcement. Our office offers information on a host of topics from crime prevention and victim witness assistance to tax information.

I'm very excited to serve the citizens of Hennepin County.

We're here to work for your interests.
