@BRONXDEFENDERS

When we first opened our doors in the South Bronx, we were eight advocates with the passion and drive to create a new kind of public defense. Today, The Bronx Defenders has over 250 zealous advocates who represent 35,000 clients each year.

We couldn’t do this alone. We are deeply grateful to our wonderful board of directors, pro bono law firm partners, foundation grantors, corporate stakeholders, individual supporters, elected officials and community partners who have enabled us to grow and pioneer a new kind of public defense. Thank you for your support.
