Meet Andrew

Our State Attorney

Andrew Warren was elected as State Attorney of Florida’s 13th Judicial Circuit, Hillsborough County, in November 2016 and re-elected in November 2020. As state attorney, Andrew has led an office of approximately 130 prosecutors and 300 total employees whose mission is to build a safer community while promoting justice and fairness for everyone in the criminal justice system.

Since taking office on January 3, 2017, Andrew has been tough on violent criminals, fraudsters, and repeat offenders who threaten the safety of our neighborhoods. He has utilized innovative reforms and created successful diversion programs to hold low-level offenders accountable while steering them away from the downward spiral of the system, including civil citation programs for juveniles and adults. Andrew has focused on treatment, prevention, and rehabilitation for offenders with substance abuse and mental illness in order to reduce recidivism rather than further the revolving door of the criminal justice system. He has minimized poverty traps that criminalize people because they are poor and has embraced data-driven approaches that improve safety, cut crime, and save taxpayer dollars.

On August 4, 2022, Warren was unlawfully suspended by Gov. Ron DeSantis for speaking out against laws criminalizing abortion and discriminating against transgender Americans. In January of 2023, a federal court found that the suspension was politically motivated and violated both the U.S. and Florida Constitutions, but the judge said he lacked the jurisdiction to reinstate him. Warren appealed the decision, and on January 10, 2024, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in his favor—affirming the Governor’s violations of federal law, and holding that the district court indeed has the authority to reinstate him. Andrew continues to fight for reinstatement on behalf of Hillsborough County voters.

As state attorney, Andrew has been recognized as a national leader on criminal justice policy. In 2023, he received the prestigious Minister of Justice Award from the American Bar Association. 

Before being elected state attorney, Andrew served as a federal prosecutor with the United States Department of Justice, where earned multiple accolades from DOJ and federal law enforcement agencies, including the 2013 Attorney General Award. As an experienced state and federal prosecutor, Andrew has lectured and served on panels across the United States and abroad regarding criminal justice, including serving as an instructor at DOJ’s national training center. 

Born and raised in Gainesville, Florida, Andrew studied economics and political science at Brandeis University before receiving his law degree from Columbia University. In 2013 Andrew returned home to the Sunshine State to continue his public service. He lives in Tampa with his wife and two daughters.

Andrew has served as a board member of several criminal justice organizations, including the Public Safety Coordinating Council, the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board, and Safe & Sound Hillsborough. Andrew has also served as a board member of community organizations including the Boys & Girls Club of Tampa Bay, the Tampa Hispanic Bar Foundation, Men of Vision, Starting Right Now, and NOPE (Narcotics Overdose Prevention Education). 

Andrew has also coached youth softball and girls flag football, including the Tampa Bay Little League 11u All-Star softball team that won the 2023 U.S. Southeast Regional Championship.
