City Attorney Mike Feuer
Building A More Vibrant LA: Ending Homelessness, Expanding Transportation, Keeping Our Schools Safe and Protecting Privacy In The Digital Age
The LABF is pleased to welcome Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer as our speaker at the sixteenth annual Joseph Bernfeld Distinguished Speakers Program.
Mike Feuer has long been one of California's leading lawyers and lawmakers. As L.A.'s chief lawyer and prosecutor since July 2013, he has brought an innovative, problem-solving focus that combines tough and effective prosecution with initiatives to improve public safety and the quality of life throughout the city. Mr. Feuer's office also has been at the forefront of key national issues ranging from gun violence prevention and consumer protection to justice system reform. In 2017, the America Bar Association presented its top award in the nation for a public sector law office to Mr. Feuer's office - the first City Attorney's office ever to receive the distinguished Hodson Award, recognizing "sustained, outstanding performance or a specific and extraordinary service by a government or public sector law office."
Previously, Mr. Feuer served as the Majority Policy Leader of the California Assembly and Chair of the Assembly's Judiciary Committee, writing many of California's most important public safety, children's health, transportation, consumer protection and environmental laws. Mr. Feuer jointly-authored the Homeowners' Bill of Rights and the Iran Contracting Act. He wrote the Crime Gun Identification Act and the Sargent Shriver Civil Counsel Act, as well as the nation's most comprehensive law to remove cancer-causing chemicals from consumer products, the law requiring insurance companies to insure children with pre-existing conditions, the law authorizing L.A. County's transformative transportation initiative, Measure R, and much more.
As a Los Angeles City Council member, Mr. Feuer chaired the Budget and Finance Committee, delivering on-time, balanced budgets, fighting successfully for anti-gang and after-school programs, jobs for disadvantaged youth and meals for indigent seniors. Mr. Feuer wrote some of America's toughest laws to curb gun violence, initiated L.A.'s 3-1-1 non-emergency services system and spearheaded ethics and business tax reforms.
