The Law Office of Ronald L. Kuby is devoted to opposing the federal and state government as they come up with creative new ways to disproportionately punish people living outside of the law because of their political beliefs, race, class, immigration status, creative impulses and perceived deviance.
We do criminal defense for people with open criminal cases. We also do appeals, and post-conviction work (particularly if you are an immigrant facing deportation for an old conviction or an innocent person who was convicted on the basis of judicial, prosecutorial and/or police misconduct). Occasionally, people will call us because they are being criminalized for their public nudity or artistic expression—we care about that too.
People often ask whether we are civil rights lawyers—we are, for criminal defendants who’s civil rights have been violated.
Ultimately, we’re all about people who have been labeled ‘criminal’.
