Rebecca Ricigliano

First Assistant Attorney General
Rebecca Ricigliano started at the Department in May 2014 as Special Projects Coordinator for the Division of Criminal Justice. She joined the Attorney General’s leadership team as Senior Advisor in October 2014, and was named the Attorney General’s Chief of Staff in July 2015. Throughout her tenure in the Department, she has overseen its response to New Jersey’s heroin and opiates crisis, and will continue to do so in her capacity as First Assistant Attorney General.

Prior to joining the Department, Ricigliano served in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York as Senior Trial Counsel in the Public Corruption Unit. Before that, she served as Chief and Deputy Chief of the Southern District of New York’s Narcotics Unit, where she oversaw complex narcotics and money laundering cases involving large-scale cocaine and heroin traffickers, as well as medical professionals involved in the criminal diversion of prescription pain killers and other controlled dangerous substances. As an Assistant U.S. Attorney, Ricigliano investigated and prosecuted crimes in the Public Corruption and International Narcotics Trafficking Units, and served as a member of the office’s Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force. She also led the federal team that investigated and prosecuted members and associates of the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia, a group formally designated by the U.S. Department of State as a foreign terrorist organization.

Earlier in her career, Ricigliano worked in private practice as an associate at the New York law firm of Morvillo, Abramowitz, Grand, Iason & Silberberg, and for the law firm of Schulte, Roth, and Zabel. Ricigliano is a resident of Union County.
