Review Ella Fernandez

About Me

After passing California State Bar exam in 2000, I joined the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office in in 2001.  As
a Deputy District Attorney for nearly eight years I held positions in
various units, including Preliminary Hearings, Misdemeanor Trials,
Felony Trial Team, Domestic Violence, Juvenile Court, Drugs, Welfare Fraud and SACA (Sexual Assault Cases).  I also had numerous trial wins in DUI, Gang, Drug, Domestic Violence, Violent Crime, Rape and Grand Theft Auto cases; I was awarded the prestigious “Bull Dog” award in 2006 for trial victories.  I left the D.A’s office as Trial Team Leader in the Major Narcotics unit.
