Passion. Commitment. Justice. Queens Defenders' commitment to justice and the community extends well beyond the courtroom. Our zealous, skilled attorneys handle cases across a broad spectrum, ranging from misdemeanors to major trials and homicides. They work with clients involved in Queens treatment courts, as well as advocate for youth charged with felonies and immigrants facing criminal charges. We work to limit the impact of a criminal record on employment, housing, education, and public benefits. Founded in 1996, we have represented more than 450,000 clients.

The Queens Defenders commitment extends well beyond the courtroom. We employ a team of social workers who connect clients with critical resources and alternatives to incarceration. We bring our services to the community through prevention, mentoring, and diversion programs for youth. We provide workshops to educate adults about their legal rights. Queens Defenders has Outreach Centers in Far Rockaway and Jamaica. We partner with local organizations, libraries, schools, law enforcement, and community coalitions.
