NYSDA Membership

NYSDA is the largest criminal defense bar association in New York and among the first statewide defense organizations to be established in the country. Membership is not just for lawyers, it's open to people in the public defense client community, defense team members, such as sentencing specialists, and others committed to improving the quality of publicly supported criminal defense.
