Title: Assistant Attorney General

In addition, the Bureau represents the Office in a variety of matters, including probate and chancery actions where the Attorney General is a necessary party because the interpretation of a charitable document, the validity of a charitable interest, and/or the use or valuation of a charitable asset is at issue.
