Meet Dave


Dave Aronberg was elected State Attorney for the 15th Judicial Circuit in November 2012. He is a former assistant attorney general, White House Fellow and Florida Senator.

Aronberg was born in Miami. He attended public schools before going on to graduate with honors from Harvard College and Harvard Law School. After graduation, he worked in the litigation department of a large South Florida law firm while also working closely with then-Insurance Commissioner Bill Nelson to investigate European insurance companies that refused to honor World War II-era policies sold to victims of the Holocaust.

In 1999, Aronberg became a Florida Assistant Attorney General for economic crimes.

Dave Aronberg was elected to the State Senate in 2002 as its youngest member and served until 2010. Focusing on criminal justice and consumer protection issues, Aronberg passed major identity theft and port security legislation and received national attention for his work to close loopholes in our sex offender laws.

In 2010, Aronberg returned to the Florida Attorney General’s Office as a Special Prosecutor for Prescription Drug Trafficking. In his role as the Attorney General’s “Drug Czar,” Aronberg led AG Pam Bondi’s anti-pill mill initiative that helped clean up the pain clinic industry and reduced the record number of people dying each day from oxycodone abuse.

Elected in a three-way race with 58% of the vote, Dave Aronberg was sworn in as Palm Beach County’s State Attorney on January 8, 2013.

Crime affects all of us and as your state attorney I have been focused on putting justice first.
