We are deeply saddened to hear that we have lost our longtime friend and colleague, Alfred Siegel. Al was one of our greatest allies in the fight for justice. He dedicated his life to creating a fair and humane justice system. The Center for Court Innovation and The Bronx Defenders have partnered extensively, and it would not have been without Al’s passion and dedication that we would been able to impact so many lives. Our community is a stronger, fairer place because of his lifetime of service. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
