Caleb Kruckenberg

White Collar Crime Policy Counsel

In his capacity as White Collar Crime Policy Counsel, Caleb’s goal is to promote rational legislation and fair and predictable enforcement in the white-collar sphere. To that end, Caleb monitors legislation and legal developments and seeks to educate lawmakers and other stakeholders about the troubling trend of overcriminalization, the erosion of meaningful mens rea requirements, and the overly punitive nature of federal sentencing laws. Caleb also helps organize and execute NACDL’s education initiatives, including white collar crime seminars and webinars throughout the year.

Before joining NACDL, Caleb represented clients in diverse criminal defense matters at both the trial and appellate level in a variety of jurisdictions. He began his career as an Assistant District Attorney in the Appeals Bureau of the New York County District Attorney’s Office, then served as an Assistant Public Defender for the State of New Mexico. He later transitioned to serve as an Assistant Federal Public Defender for the District of New Mexico. Most recently, Caleb worked as a criminal defense and civil rights attorney in Philadelphia. Caleb has tried cases before juries and argued appellate matters all over the country, sometimes in the same week.

Caleb received his J.D., cum laude, from Temple University, Beasley School of Law, where he was the Lead Articles Editor of the Temple Law Review. He also holds a B.A. in fine art from the University of Kansas. At one time or another, Caleb has been admitted to practice in state and federal courts in New York, New Mexico and Pennsylvania, the federal district courts in Delaware and New Jersey, and the Third and Tenth Circuit Courts of Appeals.
