Attorney General Brian E. Frosh was sworn in as Maryland’s 46th Attorney General on Jan. 6, 2015, pledging to bring fairness, equality and justice to all Marylanders.

Attorney General Frosh is focused on cracking down on unfair, deceptive and predatory business practices, on protecting our natural resources from damage, and on bringing transparency and openness to government. He is also working to keep our neighborhoods safe and prevent crime before it happens on our streets and on the Internet.

Prior to his current position, Mr. Frosh served for 28 years in the Maryland General Assembly – 8 years in the House of Delegates and 20 years in the State Senate, where he was chairman of the Judicial Proceedings Committee for 12 years.

As a legislator, Attorney General Frosh put in place stronger protections for victims of domestic violence and led efforts to expand the state’s DNA database to help law enforcement catch criminals, and to enact some of the toughest common-sense gun laws in the country. He is known as a strong champion of the environment, and has received the Leadership in Law Award from the Daily Record, among numerous other honors.

He was raised in Montgomery County, where he still lives. He earned his B.A. from Wesleyan University and received his law degree from the Columbia University School of Law.
