Joyce Vance

Former US Attorney for Alabama’s northern district is slated to speak at Momentum’s graduation ceremony for the 2016-2017 executive leadership class.

Joyce White Vance stepped down as President Obama’s U.S. Attorney in North Alabama on January 19, 2017.  As U.S. Attorney, she served an estimated 3.1 millions residents as the top-ranking federal law enforcement official in district, directing criminal prosecutions, and civil and appellate litigation on behalf of the United States.

During her tenure, Vance and her team focused on civil rights, drug trafficking, prison reform, and public corruption cases, among other pressing issues in our state.

Vance served as a member of the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee under Attorney General Eric Holder, and co-chaired the Criminal Practice Subcommittee from 2009 to 2017.  She also served as a member of the Civil Rights Subcommittee.

Before joining the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Vance spent 3 years in private practice as a litigator with Bradley, Arant, Rose & White here in Birmingham, and 3 years with Arent, Fox, Kintner, Plotkin and Kahn in Washington, D.C.

Currently, Vance frequently appears on MSNBC as a commentator on legal issues and is engaged on a variety of criminal justice reform projects.  She will join the faculty of the University of Alabama Law School late this summer.
