05/25/2012

Jonathan Pressment, a litigator in the New York office of Haynes and Boone, LLP, has been elected to the New York County Lawyers’ Association (NYCLA) Board of Directors.

“Haynes and Boone's entrance into the NYCLA community is a credit to the work we have done for NYCLA, our commitment to continue playing an important role in the New York legal community and a sign that our reputation in New York is growing,” said Kenneth Bezozo, New York office managing partner. “We are proud that the organization chose to move Jon into this leadership position.”

Pressment, David Siegal and other Haynes and Boone attorneys have spent the last two years working pro bono on behalf of NYCLA and the bar associations of each of the other four New York counties in a lawsuit against Mayor Bloomberg, the City of New York and the Mayor's Criminal Justice Coordinator relating to the provision of indigent defense services in New York City's Criminal Courts.

That case is now headed to the New York Court of Appeals, which has scheduled arguments for September.
