Olshan Summer Associate Rahmel Robinson Featured in Brooklyn Eagle on Brooklyn Law School’s Victory at Albany County Court

Media Mention

Brooklyn Law School student and 2023 Olshan summer associate Rahmel Robinson was featured in a Brooklyn Eagle article on a resentencing victory he helped achieve at Albany County Court with Brooklyn Law School’s Criminal Defense and Advocacy Clinic (CDAC). Championing the cause of an incarcerated survivor of domestic violence, Rahmel and the CDAC team secured her immediate release under the Domestic Violence Survivors Justice Act, effectively shaving nearly a decade off her potential sentence and preventing a lifetime in prison. In its commitment to justice, CDAC has achieved 11 resentencing wins in a span of three years across ten New York counties. “Robinson’s work at CDAC goes beyond standard student duties,” the article states. “Under the supervision of legal professionals, he delves deep into life histories, conducts witness interviews, and drafts pivotal legal affidavits, all in pursuit of justice for those he represents. Outside the clinic, Robinson continues to make waves in the legal world. His role as a summer associate at the esteemed Olshan Frome Wolosky LLP stands as proof of his burgeoning prowess in the legal realm.”
