In his lecture series, “Transcending the Law”, Paul Prestia speaks of the dichotomy of criminal defense and civil rights as it mirrors his reluctance to study law as a young law student, which inevitably led to his passion for legal activism. Mr. Prestia’s work as a prosecutor for the Brooklyn D.A., and now a criminal defense and civil rights attorney has afforded him an aerial view of the law, providing him the foresight to deal with a variety of clients.
In what he refers to as the Guilt and Innocence Conundrum Paul shares his story, a candid display of humility journeying through time-lined highlights of his law career and law reform. He recounts episodes in his fight to find justice for clients like while exposing the corrupt culture of the U.S. Criminal Justice System.
