Ellen F. Rosenblum, Attorney General

Oregon’s 17th Attorney General

Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum is a former federal prosecutor and state trial and appellate judge. She was first elected to a four-year term as Oregon's 17th Attorney General in 2012, re-elected to a second term in 2016 and to a third term in 2020. She is the first woman to serve as Oregon Attorney General. As Oregon’s chief legal officer, her top priority is providing the “gold standard” of legal advice to state government. As the People’s Attorney she emphasizes consumer protection and civil rights – advocating for and protecting Oregon's most vulnerable youth, older adults, immigrants and refugees, as well as those targeted by hate and bias. She works closely with district attorneys and local law enforcement in prosecuting elder abuse and complex crimes and has made crimes against children as well as consumer privacy high priorities. Over the course of her three terms in office she has secured billions of dollars in consumer and environmental settlements and restitution for the State and Oregonians.

Attorney General Rosenblum has been active in local and national organizations of lawyers, judges and attorneys general. She is the President of the National Association of Attorneys General and a past Chair of the Conference of Western Attorneys General. She has served as Secretary of the American Bar Association (ABA) and as Chair of the ABA Section of State & Local Government Law.

Attorney General Rosenblum is a “Double Duck”—having graduated from the University of Oregon for both college and law school. She also attended Scripps College. She is married to Richard Meeker and they have two children and three grandchildren.
