• The mission of the Office of the State Solicitor (OSS) is to ensure the highest quality of appellate advocacy throughout the Office of the Attorney General.  OSS does so by handling selected important appeals and amicus briefs itself, and by working closely with Assistant and Special Assistant Attorneys General on appellate strategy, brief-writing, and oral argument preparation.  OSS also advises the Attorney General regarding multi-state amicus briefs filed in the United States Supreme Court and other appellate courts around the country.
