Washington DC, Sept 28, 2017 – The U.S. Senate confirmed former state Rep. B.J. Pak to lead the U.S. attorney’s office in Atlanta for the next four years.

The U.S. Senate officially confirmed Byung “BJay” Pak as the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia last week.
The district includes the cities of Atlanta, Rome, Gainesville, Newnan and 46 counties in Georgia and covering a population of more than six million people.
“President Trump’s selection of BJay Pak as U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Georgia was an excellent choice,” said U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson. “BJay brings the passion and expertise required for this role, and I have full confidence that he will make Georgians proud as he works to protect their interests and enforce the rule of law.”
Pak replaces John A. Horn, who had served as U.S. Attorney in Atlanta since December 2015.
