Veronica Pawlowski develops policy and tackles urgent issues in Los Angeles County’s complex justice system.
Prior to joining Supervisor Kuehl’s office, Veronica enjoyed a busy and diverse career of 19 years as an attorney. Veronica started her County career as an Assistant Lead Attorney in the Children’s Special Investigations Unit–a unit that served as special counsel to the Board of Supervisors on child welfare systems and policies. Most recently, Veronica worked for the Office of County Counsel where she advised the Department of Children and Family Services; the Probation Department; and the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. While at County Counsel, Veronica worked to improve information sharing between County Departments, developed trainings for social workers and probation officers, and co-led the team of attorneys that drafted the ordinances to establish the Probation Oversight Commission and expand the Civilian Oversight Commission’s authority to issue subpoenas through the Office of Inspector General. Before coming to the County, Veronica worked for the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office, Orange County Counsel, and as a litigator in private practice.
Veronica earned her law degree from Boston College and her undergraduate degrees in Political Science and Communications from the University of Southern California.
