Office of the Chief Counsel

The Office of the Chief Counsel (AGC) provides legal services to the FAA Administrator and all agency organizations worldwide. Our primary functions are providing legal advice, reviewing agency action for legal sufficiency, and providing representational services. AGC attorneys represent the agency in a variety of forums, including the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Department of Transportation Administrative Law Judges, and the United States federal courts. AGC also works closely with the Office of the General Counsel of the Department of Transportation on issues that are common to modal administrations or that are of national significance to the aviation industry.
