Meet Ellen Rosenblum

Ellen Rosenblum has spent her life fighting for and protecting the people of Oregon -- as a federal prosecutor, a judge, and now as our Attorney General.

Elected in 2012 as Oregon’s 17th Attorney General and the first woman to hold this post, she was re-elected to a second four-year term last November. Ellen has focused on standing up for the most vulnerable Oregonians, especially children and seniors.

And now she and the Oregon Department of Justice are our first line of defense against attacks from the Trump Administration. Earlier this year, Ellen joined many of her Democratic AG colleagues in a successful lawsuit against Trump’s travel ban. In September, Ellen also joined a large group of Democratic AG's in filing a lawsuit opposing Trump's action canceling the DACA program.

She will fight against any and all attempts by the Trump administration to harm Oregonians or its environment--from clean air to treasured monuments; from valued immigrants, to sexual assault survivors, to students and their families suffering from mounds of education-related debt.

Under Ellen's leadership, the Department of Justice child support program secures an average of a million dollars a day for Oregon families. She has protected Oregonians from unlawful trade practices, internet crimes against children, and international drug cartels. She has also worked to modernize our laws on privacy and data breach, as well as those that protect crime victims, including survivors of campus sexual assault.

Ellen is also at the forefront of the fight against opioid abuse, pushing to hold drug companies accountable for their role in this devastating epidemic as a member of the leadership team of a multi-state, bipartisan investigation into potentially unlawful marketing, sales and distribution practices by opioid manufacturers and distributors.

Ellen is a graduate of the University of Oregon and the University of Oregon School of Law. Go Ducks!

Oregon is a special place. As Attorney General, I am working hard to keep it that way for future generations of Oregonians.Oregon is a special place. As Attorney General, I am working hard to keep it that way for future generations of Oregonians.
