Department of Justice Announces Corey Amundson to Head the Office of Professional Responsibility justice.gov/opa/pr/departm…
The Department of Justice today announced Corey Amundson as the head of the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR). Corey Amundson has replaced Robin Ashton, who left the position after almost a decade of service in the Office of Professional Responsibility.
As the head of the OPR, Mr. Amundson will lead a component of the U.S. Department of Justice that investigates misconduct allegations against Department attorneys, immigration judges, and law enforcement agents. He is the fourth permanent head since the office was founded.
Mr. Amundson previously served as Acting United States Attorney for the Middle District of Louisiana and Acting Executive Director of the National Center for Disaster Fraud, an agency within the Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.
He also advised multiple administrations as a member of the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee, Criminal Chiefs Working Group, and enforced standards of conduct as a supervisor for more than a decade, including as First Assistant United States Attorney, Criminal Chief,
Senior Deputy Criminal Chief, and Deputy Criminal Chief.

Mr. Amundson also served as lead counsel in more than 150 federal criminal matters at the district and appellate levels and has extensive courtroom experience successfully navigating complex prosecutions and trials, many
involving misconduct by government officials and attorneys. He is the recipient of awards and commendations from the U.S. Attorney General, the Director of the Executive Office for United States Attorneys, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the head of Criminal
Investigations for the Internal Revenue Service, and the Inspectors General for the Departments of Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, and Treasury (Tax Administration).
Mr. Amundson frequently lectures at the National Advocacy Center and the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center and has served as an Adjunct Professor at the Louisiana State University Law Center teaching its corporate and white-collar crime course.
Prior to joining the Department, Mr. Amundson practiced in the private sector handling white-collar criminal matters, internal investigations, and complex civil litigation.
Mr. Amundson received his J.D. from Emory University and his B.A. in political science and criminal justice from Indiana University. #OPR #DOJ⚖️🇺🇸
