Port Hueneme History
The name of this scenic city comes from the Spanish spelling of the Chumash wene me, meaning "Resting Place". Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo explored this area and the adjacent Channel Islands in October 1542. The town's name was officially changed to Port Hueneme in 1939 and was incorporated March 24, 1948.
Thomas Bard learned of the submarine canyon at Point Hueneme and took advantage of the canyon depth to construct the Hueneme Wharf in 1871 here. The existing street grid of the town was formally laid out in 1888. Until the construction of the Montalvo Cutoff that brought the railroad to nearby Oxnard, the wharf was the principal means of transportation for that portion of Ventura County lying south of the Santa Clara River. Hueneme was the second largest grain shipping port on the Pacific coast between 1871 and 1895. Both the Port of Hueneme and Naval Base Ventura County lie within city limits.
Port Hueneme has a south-facing sand beach, known for its surfing. The beach has a wooden fishing pier and is about a mile long between Ormond Beach downcoast and Point Hueneme Light at the harbor entrance shared by the naval base and the port. The Waterfront Promenade, also known as the Lighthouse Promenade, provides a paved public access along the shoreline with two historic sites at view points: the 1872 Wharf and the Oxnard Packing House. There are also picnic tables and barbecue grills.
Naval Base Ventura County
Naval Base Ventura County was formed in 2000 through the merger of Naval Air Station Point Mugu and Naval Construction Battalion Center Port Hueneme. The base is a diverse installation comprising three main facilities — Point Mugu, Port Hueneme and San Nicolas Island — and serving as an all-in-one mobilization site, deep water port, railhead, and airfield. This base supports more than 100 tenant commands with a base population of more than 19,000 personnel, making it the largest employer in Ventura County.

Filing figures are taken from public information available through PACER. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of the Federal filing database, but we believe it is reliable. We do not mean to imply that the volume of cases filed or handled should serve as the only metric by which one should choose a lawyer. We do not intend to indicate that the number of cases filed provides a measurement of quality or service. Figures are for Northern Division of the Central District of California. Certain law firms have more than one attorney and this may factor into the number of cases filed by that firm. In addition, the volume of bankruptcy legal work performed by a law firm may include matters that do not result in a "filing." Such matters may include extensive litigation involvement, creditor representation, appellate work, or other financial distress representation. Certain attorneys may practice and file in both the Central District of California and other Districts. An attorney may practice and file in other Divisions in the Central District. All such data may be useful in reviewing attorney filing data but is not reproduced here. The chart above is for the calendar year 2015 Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 filings for which the debtor's address was in Camarillo, California. Many other factors might influence your decision about whom to hire. We are confident we will do well on any basis.
