Angela D. Alsobrooks

In 2010, by an overwhelming margin, the citizens of Prince George’s County elected Angela Alsobrooks to serve as the county’s State’s Attorney. This is her first elected office and she is the first woman to be elected to the office in Prince George’s County. She is a life-long county resident.

As State’s Attorney, Ms. Alsobrooks leads a staff of 90 attorneys and 100 professional administrative staff responsible for prosecuting people accused of committing crimes. She plays a key role in public safety and strives to carry out her responsibilities as the county’s top prosecutor in a firm, fair and consistent manner.

Prosecution Rates
Under her leadership, prosecution rates have risen across the board and remained steady over the last 5 five years. Alsobrooks and her office have been a major factor in the record crime reduction the county has seen over the last four years. Ms. Alsobrooks has also taken the lead in the fight to reduce domestic and family violence, hosting conferences for children and families and developing training programs for clergy and others who counsel couples and families in crisis.


After completing her public policy degree at Duke University, and earning her law degree from the University of Maryland, Ms. Alsobrooks was hired to serve as the county’s first full-time Assistant State’s Attorney dedicated to prosecuting perpetrators of domestic violence. She tried scores of cases and successfully prosecuted violent offenders. She has extensive District Court and Circuit Court trial experience.

Job Background

Before she was a prosecutor, she clerked for two highly respected law firms: DLA Piper and DeCaro, Doran. She also clerked for Judge William Quarles (then on the Circuit Court of Maryland, now a United States District Court judge) and Judge Donna Hill Staton.

Prior to her election, Ms. Alsobrooks served the county as an education liaison in the Office of the County Executive and then as executive director of the Prince George’s County Revenue Authority. That agency is responsible for facilitating economic development, financing capital improvement programs in the county and collecting revenues generated from public parking facilities.
