Attorney General Matt Denn announced the appointment of new veteran Delaware Department of Justice attorneys to leadership positions at the department.

Aaron Goldstein was named chief deputy attorney general, taking over for LaKresha Roberts who left the department in January.

Goldstein served as state solicitor since 2015, which is the head of the DOJ Civil Division. Goldstein has been with the Department of Justice since 2004, including previously serving as head of the Department’s Health Law Unit and assistant head of the Government Services Unit. Prior to working at the DOJ, he worked in a private law firm, in the New Castle County Office of Law, the city of Wilmington Law Department and as an assistant public defender. He was chosen as a Henry Toll Fellow by the Council of State Governments in 2011. Goldstein is a graduate of the University of Delaware and Widener University School of Law.

Allison Reardon was named to be state solicitor, replacing Goldstein.

Reardon served as the director of the Office of Civil Rights and Public Trust, an office created by Denn, since 2015. Prior to 2015, Reardon served as state solicitor from 2012 to 2015, so she is returning to that role. She has also served as group leader for the Administrative Law and Education Group and section leader for the Government Services Unit. She has 25 years of service with the DOJ and worked in a private law firm for five years. Reardon is a graduate of the University of Delaware and Widener University School of Law.
