Special Counsel - Civil Rights Division
Ellie Silverman is an experienced Civil Rights litigator with an extensive background in personal injury law. She brings passion, creativity and heart to every argument as she advocates for incarcerated persons (past and present), the wrongfully convicted, those claiming actual innocence and any other victim who has been falsely arrested and imprisoned, maliciously prosecuted, physically and emotionally abused, brutalized, assaulted, manipulated, demonized, denied basic human needs, refused medical attention and otherwise prevented from due process of law. She focuses on bringing attention and awareness to the injustices that continue to occur on the streets of our New York neighborhoods and within the walls of our prisons, jails, or police precincts. Ellie’s mission is to continue to fight against society’s apathetic stance on the inhumane and inappropriate treatment that is bestowed on members of our community and their families, many of whom are often overlooked and almost always ignored in our disproportionate criminal and civil justice systems and by the Department of Corrections.
