Defendant Advocacy

Client-centered, full-service advocacy, intended to address all the determinants of involvement with the system, including substance use, economic instability, environmental health risks, the criminalization of poverty and neurovariance/mental health risks, and the policing of perceived identity rather than conduct. This office recognizes each client as a complete person, with a life, skills, strengths, and community, and we aim to increase an individual’s capacity to effectively participate in their own defense by fully sharing information and making that information clear to the clients and their loved ones.
