Senior Staff Attorney, Criminal Defense Practice
Cameron Mease was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. He attended Northwestern University, where he earned degrees in Psychology and Political Science. Cameron received his J.D. from Georgetown Law Center in 2011.
Cameron interned with the Parole Revocation Defense Unit at the Legal Aid Society in New York City, working on Rikers Island to prevent the reincarceration of his clients. Cameron also had the opportunity to work with the Parole Division of the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia, maintaining his own caseload and personally conducting parole revocation proceedings in D.C. jail. These experiences taught Cameron that there is nothing that motivates him to action more than a client in legal trouble in need of a zealous advocate.
During his third year in law school, Cameron was able to participate in Georgetown Law’s Criminal Defense and Prisoner Advocacy Clinic, adding a D.C. criminal court caseload to his work with parolees in the D.C. area. Cameron was awarded the Greenfield Trial Practice Award, given to an outstanding student committed to public defense work.
Cameron is now proud to be working at Brooklyn Defender Services as an advocate for a vibrant and diverse community.
