Lee Vartan

Executive Assistant Attorney General

  Lee Vartan, of Chester, was appointed Executive Assistant Attorney General on March 7, 2014. Previously he served as Chief of Staff. In that capacity, he spearheaded department-wide law enforcement initiatives, oversaw major civil litigation efforts, and provided daily assistance and guidance to the Divisions of State Police, Gaming Enforcement and Alcoholic Beverage Control.

Prior to his appointment as Chief of Staff in December 2012, Vartan served as Special Counsel to the Attorney General. Before joining the Department, Vartan served as Assistant Counsel to Governor Christie, where he advised the Governor on education and higher education issues.

From 2007 to 2011, Vartan served as an Assistant United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey, where he prosecuted computer crimes, mortgage fraud, gun trafficking, identity theft, child exploitation offenses, and tax violations.

Vartan received his undergraduate degree in 2000 from Princeton University and his law degree in 2003 from Harvard Law School. Vartan also serves as an Adjunct Professor at Seton Hall University School of Law, where he teaches a course in cybser-security and computer crimes.

As Executive Assistant Attorney General, Vartan will continue to direct critical initiatives and programs to insure that the Department not only meets, but exceeds, its mission to protect the safety, security and quality of life of the people of New Jersey.

"Our department has benefitted tremendously from Lee Vartan's prescient and judicious counsel, which I find invaluable," said Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman. "Not only does Lee possess a wealth of legal knowledge and ability, he has proven himself to be a dedicated public servant with a broad and valuable perspective. I am confident he will make an excellent Executive Assistant Attorney General."
