As a longstanding member for over 20 years of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL), William Wolf has made a decision to volunteer this Law Office towards NACDL’s efforts to defend protesters pro bono from arrest and criminal prosecution.
On September 19, 2017, the Foundation for Criminal Justice (FCJ) and NACDL launched the First Amendment Strike Force and Mass Defense Unit. The stated goal of this project is to provide qualified counsel to represent protesters when the exercise of First Amendment rights results in arrest and prosecution. NACDL will support a cadre of criminal defense lawyers who will be available to provide pro bono assistance to protesters throughout the country in the event of mass arrests. NACDL has announced that they will maintain a database of available counsel and provide training and support at no cost. William Wolf has asked NACDL to add him to that database.
