Attorney General Brian E. Frosh was sworn in as Maryland’s 46th Attorney General on January 6, 2015, pledging to bring fairness, equality and justice to all Marylanders.
As attorney general, Brian has focused on cracking down on unfair, deceptive, and predatory business practices, on protecting our natural resources, and on bringing transparency and openness to government. He is also working to keep our neighborhoods safe and to prevent crime on our streets and on the Internet.
Since taking office, Brian has undertaken numerous efforts to protect and ensure women’s reproductive rights. He has taken on the Trump administration’s numerous efforts to deny access to contraceptives and reproductive services provided by the Affordable Care Act. He has also joined attorneys general across the country in challenging federal attempts to eliminate or undermine access to reproductive services, including challenging the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s effort to change the “public charge” rule – targeting immigrants and their families and denying more women reproductive care services.
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 received the Leadership in Law Award from the Daily Record, among numerous other honors.
He was raised in Montgomery County, where he resides with his wife Marcy. He earned his B.A. from Wesleyan University and received his law degree from the Columbia University School of Law.
