Scott Andrew
Yang
Is running for Judge of the Los Angeles Superior Court, Seat 162.
My extensive public service career has been dedicated to protecting victims of violence.
I have been a Deputy District Attorney for over 11 years, currently assigned to the Sex Crimes Division where I am known for my record as a strong and ethical criminal prosecutor, as well as an advocate for victims and families. Previously, I worked for the Los Angeles County District Attorney in the Victim Impact Program, where I prosecuted cases ranging from domestic violence to child murder most notably Isauro Aguirre, Gabriel Fernandez’s murderer along with Jonathon Hatami.
I am committed to giving back to my community.
I have led Victim Advocacy trainings for the Desert Oasis Center of the Antelope Valley, supporting volunteers who help victims of domestic violence and sex crimes advocate for their rights and access to vital services. I have also worked with the Los Angeles County DA’s Law Clerk program, to help mentor college and law school students interested in a legal career.
I am respected and trusted.
As an accomplished trial attorney, I believe I have the experience and background to be a good and fair judge. Not only am I respected and trusted by my colleagues and those I’ve advocated for, but I have also earned the respect, trust, and support from defense attorneys, judicial officers, court staff, and law enforcement.I hope to continue to serve the community as a judge and commit to my work with the same integrity, fairness and temperament to the bench as I have demonstrated as an attorney.
“Mr. Yang is passionate about equality, justice and fairness.  He is humble and will bring civility and respect to the bench.  I truly look forward to having him as a colleague.”
- Hon. Robert Chu,
Superior Court Judge
I ask for your support for my campaign and to vote for me on March 3, 2020!
A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I am a Deputy District Attorney, former small business owner, and an immigrant who embodies the American Dream.
Born in Vietnam, my family and I were forced to flee our home in 1979. My parents, four siblings, and I settled in the Los Angeles community of Echo Park in 1984. Both of my parents never received a formal education and came from humble roots. From them, I learned to believe in the American dream and what it offered my family: the power of opportunity, education, and hard work. I proudly attended public schools in Los Angeles including Betty Plasencia Elementary School, Virgil Junior High School, U.S. Grant High School and later went on to earn a BA in Political Science from UCLA. I then attended Southwestern University School of Law.  As an active parent at my three children’s public schools, my wife and I enjoy hosting family and friends at my home in Los Angeles County. 
I am a proud member of the Los Angeles County Bar Association, the Asian Pacific American Bar Association, and the National Asian Pacific Islander Prosecutor Association.
Before serving as a Deputy District Attorney, I have five years of civil litigation experience. During my legal career, I have argued 1,000+ motions and hearings in California courts.

My experience as an immigrant cultivated my passion for public service. My experience in public service strengthened my resolve to serve and strengthen everyone in the community. My background, experience, and qualifications makes me the best candidate for Judge of the Los Angeles Superior Court.
