  OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL
 
   

The Attorney General of the Virgin Islands is appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Legislature of the Virgin Islands. The role of the Attorney General and his staff is to act as lawyer for every citizen in the territory, asserting the rights of those citizens under the laws of the territory, and protecting them from those who would violate those rights.


The Department is currently under the supervision of Attorney General Vincent F. Frazer, who brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the Department of Justice, where he serves as the territory’s chief law enforcement officer.

 
 
Attorney Frazer’s oversight of all Divisions and Units within the Department, provides the leadership and the administrative guidance that allows the Department to carry out its mission. In his capacity as Attorney General, Attorney Frazer also serves as board member of the Virgin Islands Port Authority and sits on the Executive Board of the Virgin Islands High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) program.

Attorney Frazer is a native of the Virgin Islands, who returned home after completing his undergraduate and graduate studies on the U.S. mainland. Attorney Frazer earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice and Political Science in 1980 from Carthage College Kenosha Wisconsin, after graduating from Charlotte Amalie High School on St. Thomas in 1976.

Attorney Frazer served as a paralegal/ administrative assistant for the Virgin Islands Department of Justice, then known as the Virgin Islands Department of Law, before going on to earn his Juris Doctorate degree in 1984 from Howard University School of Law in Washington, D.C.

Upon his return to St. Thomas, Attorney Frazer served as Staff Attorney for the Virgin Islands Port Authority, where he assisted the chief legal counsel in litigation matters, in addition to supervising the Property Management Division, and serving as the Minority Business Enterprise Liaison Officer.

Prior to his appointment by Governor John de Jongh, Jr. in 2007, Attorney General Frazer served as the managing partner of the private law firm, Frazer & Williams. Attorney Frazer established the Law Offices of Vincent F. Frazer in 1988, and served as the principal before taking on an associate in 1991. The practice grew, and in 1993 became the Law Offices of Frazer & Williams, where Attorney Frazer served as the managing partner until 2005. In his practice, Attorney Frazer represented individual clients in the areas of criminal, commercial, family, personal injury, and general litigation matters. Among his clientele was the Board of Trustees for the Virgin Islands Government Employees’ Retirement System.

Attorney Frazer is a member of the Virgin Islands Bar Association, where he served on the Board of Governors from 1988 to 1989. In 1999, he became a member of the Virgin Islands Committee of Bar Examiners, a membership he has since held. Attorney Frazer is also a member of the American Bar Association and the National Association of Attorneys General. Until his appointment in 2007, Attorney Frazer was a member of the Virgin Islands Public Defenders Administration Board and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

In addition to his professional affiliations, Attorney Frazer is involved in a number of civic, social and religious organizations. Attorney Frazer’s commitment to his community, religious background, and love of family provides the foundation for his desire to make the territory a true island paradise for all Virgin Islands citizens and visitors alike.
