Initiatives to Improve School Public Safety and Gun Violence Prevention

Los Angeles City Attorney 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.  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 and challenges to recent federal policies that threaten fundamental rights and public safety.  Feuer was re-elected in March, 2017, to a second term without opposition.

In 2017, the American Bar Association presented its top award in the nation for a public sector law office to 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."  

Under the City Attorney’s broad authority, Feuer has brought a wide-range of lawsuits to protect consumers.  For example, Feuer’s office was the first government agency to take action against Wells Fargo over its opening of unauthorized accounts.  He achieved an historic settlement on behalf of the City Attorney’s Office and federal partners, requiring Wells Fargo to pay restitution to its customers, put protections in place to stop the illegal behavior and pay $185 million in fines and penalties.  Feuer is also the first L.A. City Attorney to establish a direct conduit to the business community, assigning his Special Assistant to focus on promoting a municipal environment where businesses can thrive and promote jobs.

A national leader in preventing gun violence, Feuer created the City Attorney’s Gun Violence Prevention Unit and has worked aggressively to keep guns out the hands of criminals and children. He has brought charges against adults who did not properly store firearms which later fell into the hands of children, and, with the LAPD, created protocols to assure domestic violence perpetrators do not have weapons. In a groundbreaking national effort, Feuer joined with Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. to co-found and chair Prosecutors Against Gun Violence--an independent, non-partisan coalition devoted to prosecutorial and policy solutions to the public health and safety crisis of gun violence.
