He began his work for the San Joaquin County Public Defender’s Office in 2005, including as a deputy public defender and a supervisor. In thirteen years of practice, he has handled a wide variety of cases from misdemeanors to complex criminal cases.

Judge. Fattarsi was admitted to the California State Bar in June 2004. He received his Juris Doctorate from Santa Barbara College of Law and a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from California State University, Stanislaus.

“I am truly honored to have been elected by the people of this community and to have this appointment from Governor Newsom. I look forward to serving San Joaquin County as a Superior Court Judge,” said Judge Fattarsi.
