Lawyers' Assistance Strike Force

The Lawyers Assistance Strike Force has a clear mission of representing and counseling criminal defense lawyers who are members of NACDL when they are imperiled with the risks of contempt, disqualification or subpoena for privileged information.

The NACDL Strike Force will review your case, at no cost, if you are threatened in any way for providing legal representation to a client -- if you're subpoenaed, cited for contempt, hit with a bar grievance or a motion to disqualify you from a case.

The Lawyers Assistance Strike Force is co-chaired by Martin Pinales, Susan VanDusen, Howard Srebnick and Martin Weinberg. Able circuit coordinators in each area of the country continue on a both formal and informal basis to be available to NACDL members, when appropriate, to offer both advice and representation in relation to a wide range of issues.

If you are an NACDL member you can see a full listing of Strike Force lawyers and their contact information HERE. For more information or questions about Strike Force assistance, please contact Resource Counsel, Vanessa Antoun at or (202) 465-7663.
