Attorney Oscar Rojas graduated in 1994 from the University of West Los Angeles, School of Law. After passing the California Bar Exam (1st Attempt), Mr. Rojas was immediately hired to work for the Los Angeles County Public Defender's Office.
As a Los Angeles County Deputy Public Defender, Mr. Rojas handled thousands of criminal cases. He was a direct calendar deputy, meaning he was assigned to a specific courtroom and would handle all the public defender cases assigned to that court. A typical day consisted of handling multiple arraignments, pre-trial matters, motions, preliminary hearings, and jury trials. He personally handled close to 400 Preliminary Hearings with charges ranging from low-grade felonies to Homicides.
Also, Mr. Rojas conducted a large number of jury trials. Mr. Rojas left the Public Defender's office after 3 years (as a Grade 2 ) to start his solo-practice. The invaluable experience from being in court on a daily basis has served Mr. Rojas well in private practice. He not only utilizes his experience and legal knowledge to serve his clients, but takes the approach that his clients need to fully understand the nature of the criminal proceedings before them. With this in mind, Mr. Rojas exercises patience in explaining the nature of the charges and proceedings and personally visits with incarcerated clients. This also aids in the deep understanding of the facts of the case.
Mr. Rojas received his B.A. from CSULB in Philosophy in December, 1989.
He further received his Doctor of Jurisprudence (J.D.) from UWLA, School of Law in June, 1994.
Mr. Rojas is bilingual in both English and Spanish.
Mr. Rojas is a member of the American Bar Association, Los Angeles County Bar Association, Central District Court of Los Angeles (Federal Court).
