Mr. Aceves began his legal career at the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office in 1997. During his time as a criminal prosecutor, Mr. Aceves has garnered a stellar reputation amongst his peers, Superior Court Judges and opposing counsel. He is known for his intellect, thoroughness, fairness, and relentless pursuit of justice. He has tried over 100 jury trials ranging from Special Circumstances Murder, Gang Related Murder, Mayhem, Rape, Child Molestation, Carjacking, and Kidnapping.

Mr. Aceves has devoted the majority of his career as a prosecutor to fighting against crimes perpetrated against women and children. He is currently assigned to the Victim Impact Program (“VIP”), where he primarily handles the most serious of child molestation cases, as well as physical violence against women and children.

Mr. Aceves currently serves as the President of the Whittier City School District Board of Education.  During his ten-year service on the board of education, he has helped transform the district by focusing on accountability and insisting on transparency.  Last year, the Whittier City School District received an award for being one of the most improved districts in the State of California.

In this capacity, Mr. Aceves ensures patients treated at the organization’s two hospitals and several clinics are provided with the highest quality medical care.


Mr. Aceves was the first Deputy District Attorney elected to serve as President of the Mexican American Bar Association of Los Angeles County in 2007.
