Eric Schneiderman

NYS Attorney General
Eric was elected the 65th Attorney General of New York State on November 2, 2010. As the highest ranking law enforcement officer for the State, Eric has taken on the tough fights to protect New Yorkers – because he believes there has to be one set of rules for everyone, no matter how rich or powerful. Before becoming Attorney General, Eric was praised as a leading reformer in the State Senate by numerous editorial pages and good government organizations. Among his many legislative accomplishments, Eric led the effort to reform the broken and outdated Rockefeller drug laws, and cracked down on health insurance companies trying to deny coverage to vulnerable New Yorkers. He chaired the committee to expel a corrupt senator for the first time in modern history, and enacted the toughest law in the nation to root out fraud against taxpayers. Eric previously served as a public interest lawyer, representing tenants trying to evict drug dealers from their buildings, women seeking access to health clinics, and taxpayers in historic lawsuits against the MTA. He also spent 15 years in private practice at the firm of Kirkpatrick and Lockhart. Eric graduated from Amherst College in 1977 and Harvard Law School in 1982.
