Albert is a paralegal case-handler in the Decarceration Project. He is responsible for helping his colleagues in Brooklyn navigate the bail review process. His responsibilities include supporting trial attorneys in making bail applications, filing writs, filling appeals, ordering transcripts, making bail fund referrals and any other tasks that may serve to be beneficial to our clients’ cases.
Albert started his legal career in 1993 at the Kings County District Attorney’s Office in the Grand Jury Court Reporters Office. From there he went to the Grand Jury Felony intake unit where he was a paralegal in Criminal Court Part AP1. Albert joined the Legal Aid Society in September 1998 and has filled numerous positions since, including working in central files, as an arraignment data entry clerk, and finally as a paralegal. In 2000, Albert joined the RedHook Community Justice Center where he was responsible for the daily activities for the office for 14 years. Albert keeps going because of the compassion that he has to continue to help those less fortunate than he is.
