Office of the Appellate Defender - OAD


Office of the Appellate Defender (OAD) is the oldest indigent defense organization in New York City other than the Legal Aid Society. Provides high quality, client-centered representation to indigent clients in appeals from felony convictions and in other post-conviction litigation. Also provides an array of related representation, including in parole, prison, and immigration proceedings. OAD also runs a unique social work/re-entry program -- the first of its kind in an appellate office -- that provides services to clients before and after release from prison. As a training office, OAD provides opportunities for new attorneys to learn the practice of appellate and post-conviction representation. Finally, OAD runs the Volunteer Appellate Defender program, in which associates in large NYC law firms handle appeals pro bono under OAD supervision and after extensive traning by OAD.
