Welcome to the Federal Defenders of New York Second Circuit Blog.
The Federal Defenders of New York is an independent, non-profit organization that represents poor people accused of federal crimes in the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York and in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. You can learn more about us at www.federaldefendersny.org.
This blog aims to support the New York federal criminal defense bar by reporting on recent decisions in the Second Circuit and the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York as well as other information that relates to criminal defense practice. The contributors to the blog work as appellate and trial attorneys in the federal courts in New York City.
At the Federal Defenders of New York, we take a holistic approach to our criminal defense practice, zealously representing our clients at every stage of their case and assisting our clients with reentry planning and support even after their cases have concluded. This blog takes the same approach, providing information that can be useful to counsel in conducting thorough investigations, vigorous motion and trial practice, zealous mitigation and sentencing presentations, and supportive reentry services.
We hope you will make this blog part of your daily routine.
