William Moschella, Assistant Attorney General, Department of Justice
William Moschella received his B.A. from the University of Virginia in 1990. Following graduation, he spent seven years in a variety of positions in the office of Congressman Frank R. Wolf (R-Va.), while attending George Mason University Law School in the evenings. From 1997 to 2003, he held a number of positions on Capitol Hill, including Counsel to the House Committee on Government Reform, General Counsel to the House Committee on Rules, Chief Investigative Counsel to the House Committee on the Judiciary, and finally, Chief Legislative Counsel and Parliamentarian to the House Committee on the Judiciary. He was then nominated by President Bush to be Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs at the U.S. Department of Justice. He was confirmed by the Senate on May 9, 2003. As Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs, Mr. Moschella serves as the legislative liaison between the Department of Justice and the United States Congress -- in effect, the "face and voice" of the Department on Capitol Hill. Along with representing the interests and opinions of the Department before Congress, he is responsible for internally coordinating and approving all testimony to be delivered by Department witnesses before Congressional committees, reviewing legislation proposed by the House and Senate and other departments, along with the Office of Management and Budget and other executive branch agencies, and overseeing an office of approximately 25 staff members.
