In Memoriam

Oscar Winslow, President LACAAWe are deeply saddened to inform you all that Deputy City Attorney and LACAA President Oscar Winslow passed away on Saturday, February 8th. Oscar served as a Deputy City Attorney for thirteen years, following a decorated career as a Sergeant, serving 22 years with the Los Angeles Police Department. This office and the citizens of our great City benefited immensely from Oscar’s boundless energy and fearlessness. During his time with the City Attorney's Office, Oscar excelled in a variety of assignments across the Criminal, Civil, Municipal, and Proprietary Branches, including the Gang and Gun Unit, Housing, Police Litigation, LADWP, and LAWA. Oscar also served as President of the Los Angeles City Attorneys Association and led LACAA through the peaks and valleys of the last eleven years. He committed nearly his entire adult life to public service.

Throughout his career as a Deputy City Attorney, Oscar worked as a Professor at Westwood College and had his own law practice prior to joining our office in January 2007. In his “spare” time he volunteered for the Harriet Buhai Center for Family Law and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. He graduated from Long Beach State University, received his J.D. from Southwestern Law School, and completed the certificate program at Pepperdine Law School's Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution.

As many of you know, Oscar was an extremely private person, so we cannot share any details about the circumstances surrounding his passing. We can assure you that he was not in any pain during his final days and died peacefully, surrounded by family and friends.

Oscar’s passing is a tremendous loss to everyone who knew him, and he will be missed greatly. He leaves behind his mother and three younger brothers. Visit www.inlovingmemoryofoscarwinslow.com for more information about Oscar, and if you would like to share a memory with his family please send an email to lacaa@inlovingmemoryofoscarwinslow.com. Plans for a memorial service are underway and details will be announced when they are finalized.

On behalf of LACAA, please accept our condolences and keep Oscar's family in your thoughts.
