Measure Z Helps Hire Two New Attorneys, Says Humboldt County DA
[Yesterday,] Humboldt County District Attorney Maggie Fleming announced the hiring of Deputy District Attorneys Josh Rosenfeld and Joel Buckingham.
Mr. Rosenfeld, a graduate of UCLA and UC Berkeley School of Law, has worked as a Deputy District Attorney in the Mendocino County District Attorney’s Office for over five years. He has been assigned to the Domestic Violence Unit.
Mr. Buckingham graduated from California State University, Sacramento and UC Hastings College of Law and has worked for the past 11 years in the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office. In that Office he was assigned most recently to the Cold Case Homicides Unit. Here in Humboldt Joel has been assigned general felonies and homicides.
DA Fleming noted that the addition of these experienced prosecutors is a major step forward for the District Attorney’s Office: “Not only will Humboldt County benefit directly from their ability and skills, but our Office will benefit indirectly as they share knowledge with fellow prosecutors.”
Both prosecutors are funded through Measure Z.
