GLENDALE —  On Thursday, February 24, 2011, at the Phoenicia Restaurant, the Armenian Bar Association (ArmenBar) will honor André Birotte Jr., United States Attorney for the Central District of California. ArmenBar Chairman Edvin Minassian described Mr. Birotte as “one of the most accomplished prosecutors in the Federal service, one whose professional experience includes serving as the inspector general of the Los Angeles Police Commission for the 12 years, an Assistant United States Attorney, a deputy public defender in Los Angeles, and an adjunct professor at University of Southern California’s Gould School of Law. We are proud to recognize and honor him for his over two decades of public service.”
In September 2009, President Barak Obama appointed Mr. Birotte as United States Attorney for the Central District of California, which includes seven counties, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Ventura, and a population that is the largest of any district in the country. For much of the past decade, Birotte has served in capacities of increasing responsibility in the Los Angeles Police Commission’s Office of Inspector General. Before assuming his administrative duties as Inspector General, Mr. Birotte served as Assistant United States Attorney in Los Angeles and as a deputy public defender in Los Angeles. He is a graduate of Tufts University and the Pepperdine University School of Law
