A Talk by Eric Gonzalez, Brooklyn District Attorney

Eric Gonzalez made history in November 2017 when he became the first Latino District Attorney elected in New York State. DA Gonzalez began his legal career in the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office upon his graduation from University of Michigan Law School in 1995 where he was president of the Latino Law Students Association. He spent several years as a junior and then senior assistant in various bureaus within the office, including the Sex Crimes and Special Victims Bureau. During his career Gonzalez tried a full range of cases, including homicides. He successfully guided the launch of several key initiatives, including the ground-breaking initiative known as Justice 2020, to help him carry out his vision of keeping Brooklyn safe and strengthening trust in our justice system by ensuring fairness and equal justice for all.
