The Bronx Defenders now provides services to over 35,000 clients each year
Our contract with New York City’s Office of the Criminal Justice Coordinator was recently amended to include representation in ‘conflicts’ cases. These are criminal cases with more than one suspect or defendant involved in related criminal proceedings. The interests of one may ‘conflict’ with another and so separate counsel is assigned. We will eventually handle over 4,000 conflicts cases per year.
With this addition, The Bronx Defenders now provides legal and social support services to over 35,000 clients each year.
