My Top 3 Priorities

  • Integrity
  • Empathy
  • Service



Profession:Deputy District Attorney
Deputy District Attorney, Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office (2008–current)


Pepperdine University School of Law Juris Doctor (2007)


Ms. Baron is a child molestation prosecutor for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. She successfully prosecuted hundreds of cases involving homicide, the sexual abuse of children, rape, family violence, elder abuse, and stalking.

In her 14-year career for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, Ms. Baron has been recognized by her peers, supervisors, and the media for her skill, empathy, victim advocacy, and public service. She is a trial attorney who has successfully tried misdemeanor and felony cases in jury trial. Ms. Baron has evaluated and handled complex cases and prepared witnesses including the elderly and minor children. Ms. Baron’s commitment to the people of Los Angeles County – as well as her strong principles of justice and advocacy – fueled her decision to run for office. As a Superior Court Judge in Los Angeles County, Ms. Baron will continue to represent people fairly, ethically and with compassion. She has received awards for her work on child molestation prosecutions, and has given presentations at collaborative Homicide Review Boards based off the cases she has worked on. Ms. Baron has also given trainings to other  deputy district attorneys, law enforcement agencies, and been a guest speaker at Southwestern Law School.

Ms. Baron regularly volunteers her time in community service, such as her involvement with Project LEAD and Crime Survivors. In Project LEAD, she teaches fifth-grade students practical skills for conflict resolution and fosters lifelong respect for education. Ms. Baron is a Council Member for Crime Survivors. She assists this organization in helping those who have been victimized and need resources so they can find safety and healing by providing meals, therapy resources, financial assistance, self defense classes, outreach programs, and safe places to relocate. 

Ms. Baron worked in London, England for The Howard League for Penal Reform. This program inside the prison taught graphic design skills to the participants using state of the art equipment and paid them market wage. When their sentence ended, they had a free-lance skill to use, a trust account of money to begin their business, and a new life ahead of them. The Howard League also did work in schools teaching children about crime and citizenship, as well as being involved in Children and Women’s Rights legislation. Ms. Baron’s commitment to community service reaches as far back as her teenage years when she began volunteering for service organizations helping the elderly and homeless.

Ms. Baron is an expert in Criminal Law, and has also worked in Construction Defect Law, Insurance Law and International Law.
