Ernenwein & Johnson, LLP


Manhattan Beach’s official motto is “Sun, Sand, Sea” — and it’s got plenty of each. Nestled between El Segundo and Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach achieves a balance between the hustle and bustle lifestyle of Los Angeles and the relaxed, easy going lifestyle of a beach city. For this reason, Manhattan Beach has been growing in popularity with each and every year and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every summer for its famous Manhattan Beach Open Volleyball Tournament and International Surf Festival.

It is no wonder, then, that the City of Manhattan Beach takes pride in its reputation, the safety of its citizens and guests being the biggest contributor. This is, in large part, due to the strict enforcement of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office

The L.A. County D.A.’s Office operates throughout L.A. County and is comprised of hundreds of different prosecutors at any given time. Matters that come through Manhattan Beach are resolved through the Torrance Courthouse located at 825 Maple Avenue, Torrance, CA 90503.

The District Attorney’s Office handles all misdemeanors and felonies that originate out of the City of Manhattan Beach.
