Supervisor, Criminal Defense Paralegal Department
Charlene received her Associates Degree in Paralegal Studies from Stenotype Academy. After testing the water in a civil law practice, she knew that civil law was not her calling. Charlene then became the sole Paralegal at Battiste, Aronowsky & Suchow, the former indigent provider of Criminal Defense on Staten Island. She proudly worked there for fourteen years, learning and mastering the techniques of being a Criminal Defense Paralegal. Charlene happily joins Brooklyn Defender Services, where she feels appreciated for the role that she plays in the defense of the indigent residents of Brooklyn.
