Yankwitt LLP is a proud sponsor of Gideon’s Promise

Yankwitt LLP is proud to sponsor Gideon’s Promise, a public defender advocacy organization that provides training, mentorship and leadership development to improve the quality of that representation. This is an important organization given that 80% of people accused of crimes in the United States rely on a public defender to protect their constitutional rights. This year’s annual dinner honored distinguished attorneys Deirdre von Dornum, Attorney-in-Charge of the Federal Defenders for the Eastern District of New York, and Roberto Finzi, a partner at Paul Weiss, for their incredible work as criminal defense lawyers and for their efforts to promote criminal and social justice. #YankwittLLP #GivingBack
