My career in the area of criminal defense started as early as when I was working for the Legislature in Sacramento where I worked for the Assembly Speaker's Office

I then became a prosecutor for Los Angeles City Attorney, where I handled everything from driving under the influence cases to special crimes: I was the domestic violence coordinator for the San Fernando Valley and Westside for the city of Los Angeles; worked on various task force programs involving city agency prosecutions and enforcement of city regulations

I then switched to criminal defense, after securing a position with a county experimental contracted criminal defense firm of 11 attorneys, which eventually grew to 100 attorneys, over which I became Director for the program

During that time, I handled all types of criminal cases, from misdemeanors to the most complex felony cases

I started a Capital Case Unit within the office, specialized education programs and served as a State Bar Committee Member of the first Mandatory Continuing Legal Education Panel implementing mandatory training for lawyers upon licensing. Fritzie is a member of the California State Bar.
