A Night of Celebration: BFDP's Second Annual Taste of Brooklyn 

Thank you for supporting the Brooklyn Family Defense Practice’s Second Annual Taste of Brooklyn, our most successful event yet!  BFDP was thrilled to recognize Peggy Farber of Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP for her endless support of BFDP’s work and invaluable participation in our associates’ advisory board. BFDP will also honor Dr. Carl Hart, associate professor of psychology at Columbia University and NYS Psychiatric Institute for his revolutionary work concerning drug use and poverty.. In 2013, Dr. Hart released High Times, his memoir about growing up in one of Miami's toughest neighborhoods and his journey in becoming a neuroscientist. Thanks to our charitable sponsors, attendees, and host committee members, the benefit was a unique opportunity to share our mission with our ever-growing community of supporters.

Great thanks to our sponsors and our benefit committee for all of their help:
