Delegate Jones Proposes Expansive Network of Satellite Offices for Attorney General’s Office

Delegate Jay Jones today released a proposal that would establish satellite offices throughout Virginia on behalf of the Attorney General’s Office. The satellite offices would span every region of the Commonwealth from Hampton Roads and the Eastern Shore, to Southside and Southwest, to Northern Virginia. Delegate Jones released the following statement around the proposal:

‚ÄúAs the people‚Äôs lawyer, the Attorney General needs to be accessible to all Virginians, regardless of background or geographic location. It is incumbent on us to meet people where they are – in their communities – so the OAG can roll up its sleeves and solve the problems facing everyday Virginians. This proposal would bring both accessibility to and familiarity with the AG‚Äôs Office to our most forgotten and underserved communities.‚ÄĚ

Delegate Jones’ proposal would establish new satellite offices in Hampton Roads, Southside, and the Shenandoah Valley in addition to ensuring the existing satellite offices in  Fairfax, Roanoke, and Abingdon are fully-staffed. The goal of the satellite offices would be to increase accessibility and to spread awareness of what the Virginia Attorney General’s Office can do for everyday Virginians.
