Eric Siddall is a violent crime prosecutor and Deputy District Attorney who has taken down violent street gangs, gotten guns off our streets, and put cop killers, sexual predators, and other dangerous criminals behind bars. Now, Eric is running for L.A. County District Attorney to reform the D.A.’s office and lead a new generation of prosecutors.

A seasoned prosecutor, Eric has prosecuted some of the most complex and impactful cases in the most underserved communities in Los Angeles County — convicting murderers, child molesters and serial rapists. Most recently, Eric successfully convicted the killer of LAPD Officer Paul Verna.


As a Deputy District Attorney and a board member of Justice for Murdered Children, Eric has worked with the families of victims and offenders to promote healing, reconciliation and rehabilitation. He is a strong advocate for victims' rights and supports rehabilitation programs that provide offenders with counseling, career education and other resources to turn their lives
around and become productive members of society.

In one case, Eric dismissed a case after the defendant took the stand because Eric had reasonable doubt in the integrity of the case. In another — with the full support of the surviving victims — he fought to reduce the sentence of a convicted murderer because the defendant had rehabilitated and shown genuine remorse.

Eric served as Vice President of the Los Angeles Association of Deputy District Attorneys for nearly a decade. In his role with the union, Eric successfully sued L.A. District Attorney George Gascón and forced
him to hold career criminals accountable.

Eric is a past board member and vice president of the Latino Prosecutors Association. Aside from being a prosecutor, Eric serves on the board of the Galileo Foundation, an organization focused on supporting the work of the Pontifical Academies of Sciences and Social Science. Eric received his Juris Doctorate from Fordham University School of Law and studied philosophy at Boston College. 


The son of an Argentine immigrant mother who served as a U.S. Civil Rights Commissioner and ran a law practice catering to the Latino community, and a father who was a deputy public defender, Eric grew up in a home that valued public service.

Eric lives in Highland Park with his partner and his son.
