Senior Social Worker, Education
Brenda Zubay joined BDS in April 2014 in the Education Advocacy Project. Prior to working at BDS in the criminal defense practice, Brenda was working at the Bronx Defenders with parents who were being charged with abuse of neglect of their children in Family Court. She has worked as a social worker in public defense since 2008.
One thing she loves about being a social worker is that her work is in line with her principles, mainly the beliefs that all human beings have inherent worth and dignity and that all of us are interconnected.
Additionally, she has been a field instructor for MSW interns since 2012 and really enjoys the chance to train future social workers. She has also taught for attorneys at a Cardozo School of Law clinic and is a guest lecturer at Columbia University’s School of Social Work.
To complement and enhance her social work practice, she was trained in restorative justice circle-keeping in 2015.
