With over 24 years of courtroom experience and over 115 jury trials, Victor's sound judgment and integrity have earned him a position in the prestigious Major Crimes Division of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

The diverse range of personal and professional experiences that Victor has encountered undeniably played a significant role in shaping his identity today. In his capacity as a Judge, Victor will be committed to guaranteeing that everyone who enters his courtroom will be provided with a chance to voice their concerns and will be treated with equity and respect, irrespective of their background.
