About Us

Appellate Advocates is a nonprofit public defender organization, based in New York City, providing high-quality representation of individuals who have been convicted of crimes in Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island and cannot afford private lawyers. Our office is made up of people from diverse backgrounds, all of whom believe in fighting for every person’s constitutional right to a fair trial, working to overturn unjust convictions and sentences, and helping formerly-incarcerated people successfully reintegrate into their communities. While our main work is criminal appeals, we also represent sex trafficking victims who wish to vacate their convictions, re-investigate cases, seek lower sentences for victims of domestic violence, try to protect non-citizen clients from adverse immigration consequences, and represent clients in Sex Offender Registration Act hearings. In addition, we have a robust and well-established Re-entry Program to help clients transition from incarceration back into the community.
