Administrative and Support Staff

The Criminal Practice takes great pride in the quality of its Administrative and Support Staff who provide significant support for the work of the lawyers.

The Criminal Practice embraces a team approach to client representation that requires all lawyers to work collaboratively with social workers, investigators, paralegals and support staff to deliver comprehensive services to criminal defense clients.

To facilitate a cohesive team, social workers, investigators, paralegals and support staff are deployed to work in each office, under the leadership of Aida Ramos-Herrara, Director of Administration. Each Criminal Practice county office has a borough administrator who supervises complex administrators. Complex administrators assist in the administrative operations of the complex and supervise support staff.

Attorney requests for client support services will be enhanced as a result of the implementation of the Society’s new case management system which allows for electronic transmission of case-specific referrals from lawyers to other Society professional staff, along with the tracking of referrals and services provided.
