Will Rollins is a former federal prosecutor who served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Central District of California. During his time with the U.S. Justice Department, he prosecuted white-collar criminals, including a Ponzi scheme organizer who defrauded seniors out of millions in retirement savings, as well as a corrupt physician who sold opiates for cash. Will later joined the National Security Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office, where he prosected an electrical engineer for conspiring to send microchips with missile guidance applications to China, Iranian nationals for violating U.S. sanctions on Tehran, a reported QAnon follower for an attack at the Port of Los Angeles, and some of the insurrectionists who attacked the US Capitol on January 6th.
Several months after January 6, Will left his job at DOJ and became the Democratic nominee for the U.S. House of Representatives in California’s 41st Congressional District. During his campaign, Will earned the endorsement of the Los Angeles Times, as well as a bipartisan group of elected officials, including the Governor of California, the former Speaker of the House, the former California Assembly Republican Leader, and more than one dozen sitting members of Congress.
Before joining the Justice Department, Will was a litigator at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP and clerked for the Hon. Jacqueline H. Nguyen on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and the Hon. George H. Wu in the Central District of California.
