Fresh from his hard-won confirmation last week, Deputy Attorney General James Cole announced the appointment of Stuart M. Goldberg to Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General and David A. O’Neil as his Chief of Staff Wednesday.
“Stuart and David have shown remarkable leadership during their time at the department and I am grateful they are continuing their service in these two critical positions,” said Cole in a statement. “David and Stuart are both exceptional public servants, whose dedication, sound judgment and integrity will help to lead the Office of the Deputy Attorney General and best serve the interests of the American public.”
Goldberg has served as Chief of Staff to the Deputy Attorney General since 2010 and before that was the First Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland.
Prior to joining the U.S. Attorney’s office, Goldberg was Principal Deputy Chief of the department’s Public Integrity Section, where he began as a trial attorney in 1988. He also served as Deputy Chief for Litigation and Senior Litigation Counsel for the section.
O’Neil has worked as Associated Deputy Attorney General since 2010. Prior to that he was an Assistant to the Solicitor General, and from 2006 to 2009 worked as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York.
Before joining the department, O’Neil worked at the law firm of WilmerHale.
