Panish | Shea | Boyle | Ravipudi LLP founding partner & Guardado family lead attorney, Adam Shea, has issued the following statement in response to the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner’s announcement of a formal inquest into the death of Andres Guardado:
“In the nearly five months since Andres Guardado was killed, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has failed to be transparent in its investigation into the circumstances, manner and cause of Andres’ death. The Guardado family remains diligent in seeking justice for Andres and hopeful that the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will change its course of conduct for this independent investigation by formal inquest. The veil of secrecy must be lifted.”
This will be the first inquest held in Los Angeles County in more than 30 years.
The Guardado family is represented by Panish | Shea | Boyle | Ravipudi LLP attorneys Adam Shea, Spencer Lucas, Ryan Casey and Nicholas Yoka.
