  Alvin Ricardo Little, Esq. (known to several people as “Rick Little”) heads the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General’s Crime Victims Compensation Office (“VCCO”). Rick was raised in Newark, New Jersey, where he attended Arts High School. He is a graduate of the American University and Catholic University Law School. His professional career has included, among other things, handling and supervising high profile administrative agency proceedings, prevailing in precedent setting eminent domain and environmental cost recovery cases, closing complex legal transactions, and the administration of State regulatory and funding agencies.  
  In addition to his broad experience in legal and administrative matters, Rick has history of volunteer work with service organizations, particularly in Essex County, New Jersey. For example, he has performed pro bono work for a local chapter of the National Urban League (located in Newark), served as a lecturer and a mock appeal judge for New Jersey Legal Education Empowerment Program (NJLEEP) (at Seton Hall Law School), and for more than 10 years conducted a legal mentoring program in Newark and East Orange public schools. Over the past 12 years Rick has also served as board member – six years as board chairman - of a New Jersey not-for profit whose focus is on enhancing reading skills for Newark area school children and fostering adult literacy.  
  Rick’s career as a lawyer began in private practice at Kraft & Hughes and at Riker Danzig Highland & Perretti. At each of those firms he focused primarily on public finance and secured transactions. Rick’s public service career has spanned more than 25 years and it includes serving as: an NJDOT Chief Regulatory Officer, an NJDOT Assistant Commissioner, the Executive Director of the New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund Authority, and a Deputy Attorney General. For the past eight years Rick has served as an Assistant Attorney General - primarily in the Division of Law. In 2016 he was appointed Deputy Director of the VCCO, and in 2017 Rick was named VCCO’s Executive Director.
