Avalon Superior Court


Avalon, CA is a beachside town on Catalina Island.  It is accessible by ferry, private boat, small aircraft or helicopter.  The island is approximately 22 miles south of Los Angeles, and is a part of Los Angeles county.  There are around 3,500 residents who reside on the island on a permanent basis.  The island is home to nearly one million tourists a year.


Because it is a part of Los Angeles county, Avalon is home to a Los Angeles County Superior Court.  There is one presiding judge who remains in the court.  While the population is small, it is a fully functioning courthouse.  Many of the criminal actions here are traffic offenses or alcohol related offenses.  The island sees it’s fair share of theft offenses too.  The island is patrolled by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.


While there is a court, and the prosecutor is a member of the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, there are no full time criminal defense attorneys on the island.  To handle your case, you need to hire a mainland attorney who will make the trip across the 22 miles of ocean.  Many firms charge much extra for this service, as it lessens their availability on other cases.  The Law Office of Stephanie M. Arrache handles cases on Catalina Island, and does not charge much extra for the cost. People deserve to have quality defense at affordable rates, even when the court is not as convenient as some others.


If you were charged with a misdemeanor offense, you do not need to be present in court.  This is a great convenience, as many of the arrests on Catalina are of people who are not local to the area.  Stephanie M. Arrache is dependable and reliable, and will defend your case on Catalina.  She receives great results on cases in all of the courts in Southern California.


Criminal charges in Avalon Superior Court are handled in the same fashion as criminal charges on the mainland.  No matter if you were charged with a misdemeanor or felony on Catalina Island, whether in Avalon or elsewhere on the island, you are entitled to a good defense.  The Law Office Stephanie M. Arrache has a team of investigators who are experienced in handling cases on Catalina Island.  We also have bail agents that we work with who will bail a person out of the tiny jail on Catalina Island.  We are a full-time criminal defense firm, and therefore are experienced at handling all aspects of criminal cases.


The Law Office of Stephanie M. Arrache offers free consultations, via phone or Skype if necessary.  Many people are not local and therefore cannot make it to the office.  We understand and embrace this, and are committed to making the criminal defense process as painless as possible.  You have enough to worry about after a criminal arrest and charges have been filed, no matter whether the charges are for an infraction, misdemeanor or felony.  You need an attorney you can depend on to take some of the pressure off your shoulders.
