On Thursday, July 26, 2012, the United States Attorney for the Central District of California, Andre Birotte Jr., visited Jeffer Mangles Butler & Mitchell LLP. Invited by Anthony Pacheco, a JMBM lawyer as well as a former Assistant U.S. Attorney and past President of the Los Angeles Board of Police Commissioners (LAPD), Birotte spoke to firm lawyers and several guests, including Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck, Long Beach Police Chief Jim McDonnell, and numerous members from the community.
Mr. Birotte, an outstanding and energetic speaker, outlined the priorities for the Central District which include financial fraud prosecutions, civil rights actions, and consumer protection, among others. Increasingly, the U.S. Attorney’s Office works closely with federal agencies like the FBI, IRS and DEA, and also with local law enforcement agencies in the prosecution of violent crime, financial fraud and child exploitation.
