We are pleased to welcome the PreProBono Public Interest Guest Speaker for this coming Saturday (July 7), Angelo Petrigh!
I’m copying his bio below but I think I can sum it up with these three words: Angelo’s a badass. He graduated with honors from NYU Law School and now works at the Bronx Defenders defending indigent clients accused of crimes.
It would seem that Angelo is also very handsome isn’t he? We and our Fellows are excited to hear Angelo tell us his stories about working in the criminal justice system.
We realize that many of you want to ask our guest speakers questions, but aren’t in NYC! Fear not for Alan, our co-founder, is working hard on a teleporter. He could have finished it a month ago but, no, he insists on it being capable of interstellar teleportation… Anyway, we have a back up plan.
