The Office of the Attorney General announces newest AAG

The Office of the Attorney General is pleased to announce the addition of its newest Assistant Attorney General, Ms. Erin Toolan.

Erin Toolan was sworn in on Thursday October 31, 2019 as the newest assistant attorney general for the Office of Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands. Chief Justice Alexandro C. Castro swore in the attorney, who will be working in the Criminal Division.

“We are very excited to add Ms. Toolan to the staff of prosecutors,” said Chief Prosecutor John Bradley. “She will begin in the Traffic Court, where she can get experience in the local procedures for handling criminal cases. But I’m confident she will soon be assigned more serious misdemeanor and felony cases,” concluded Chief Bradley.

Ms. Toolan previously volunteered in the United States Peace Corps, serving in Benin, West Africa from July 2009 to August 2011. As a volunteer, she developed and managed a national summer girls’ empowerment camp. She also worked in French Guiana for several months, teaching an English class. She is fluent in French.

“I look forward to serving the community and advocating for survivors during my time in the CNMI,” says Toolan.

Ms. Toolan graduated from Baylor Law School in Texas in 2015. She has worked for three years as an assistant district attorney in two Texas counties, handling misdemeanor and felony cases in trial courts. She has special experience working with victims in Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault cases.
