Paul Prestia has transcended the law as a civil rights advocate, public speaker, legal commentator and TV presence.
For over a decade, Mr. Prestia has been a zealous advocate for his clients- becoming a voice of the voiceless whose rights have been trampled upon by the justice system. As such, Mr. Prestia has been recognized as one of the preeminent NYC attorneys in his field. In 2016 and 2017, he was selected to New York Metro Super Lawyers list by Thompson Reuters for his efforts in Criminal Defense and Civil Rights litigation.
More than just an attorney, Mr. Prestia has been an advocate for criminal justice reform. Recently, he was a participant at the American Justice Summit and at the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers during their annual conferences. In addition, Mr. Prestia has addressed the students at UCLA, Miami and American law schools on “Kalief Browder: The Extraordinary Quest for Justice.” Mr. Browder’s tragic story became ingrained in the national landscape after the 2017 documentary series of the same name debuted on Spike Television in 2017, where Mr. Prestia played himself.
Paul candidly and eloquently tells the story of his career and the moment Kalief Browder walked through his doors and life changed forever. Please contact Don Noble Don@prestialaw.com for inquiries.
