Michael Feuer, director of research and issues for Mayor Tom Bradley's gubernatorial campaign, has been named executive director of Bet Tzedek, a nonprofit legal service organization. Feuer, 28, replaces Terry Friedman, who resigned to seek public office.
A Harvard Law School graduate, Feuer will begin overseeing the $1.6-million agency after the November elections.
He has been a clerk for California Supreme Court Justice Joseph Grodin and worked in the Los Angeles law firm of Hufstedler, Miller, Carlson & Beardsley.
According to the agency's spokesman, Bet Tzedek provided free legal and mediation services to more than 8,000 clients, most of them elderly or disabled, in 1985.
