There may be no Public Defender Union with as long and storied of a history as the New York Legal Aid Society’s, and today, Hunter spoke with Chapter Chair of the NY Legal Aid Union, Jane Fox, to discuss the efforts to revitalize that very union. The challenges facing Jane and all Public Defenders in New York City are immense. The crushing criminal caseload is compounded by the cost-of-living crisis impacting the attorneys, staff, and their clients. If Public Defenders and their clients are going to thrive in these difficult conditions, it will be thanks to the tireless efforts of Jane and the Legal Aid Union.
