Len Kamdang is an accomplished trial attorney, a formidable civil litigator, and a skilled criminal defense attorney. For a dozen years, Len served as an Assistant Federal Defender in the Eastern District of New York, where he litigated financial and regulatory offenses, organized crime, and national security cases, among others. By the time he left the Federal Defenders of New York in 2018, he had won more trials than any lawyer in the history of the office. Prior to that, he worked as a Staff Attorney at the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia, where he won full acquittals as lead counsel in all of his felony jury trials. Len also worked as a Senior Associate at the civil rights firm Neufeld Scheck Brustin Hoffman & Freudenberger, LLP, where he litigated complex wrongful conviction cases all over the country. Many of the cases on which he worked resulted in multimillion-dollar resolutions.

Most recently, Len served as Senior Director, Litigation Strategy and Trials at Everytown Law, the litigation arm of the largest gun violence prevention organization in America. In NAACP et al. v. Ohio, Len worked to overturn Ohio’s Stand Your Ground law, a type of law that has been linked to increases in homicide rates as well as driven troubling racial disparities in the criminal justice system. In another one of Len’s recent cases, Len helped his client, the City of Los Angeles, litigate and eventually settle a case against Polymer80, the nation’s largest manufacturer of ghost guns, and its founders for an unprecedented five million dollars.

Len graduated from the University of Michigan Law School. After graduation, he clerked for the Honorable Lois Bloom in the Eastern District of New York. Len has taught courses in Trial Advocacy and Professional Responsibility at CUNY Law School and has lectured about trial skills at other law schools including New York University School of Law, Columbia Law School, and Georgetown University Law Center. In 2023-2024, Len served as a Wasserstein Fellow at Harvard Law School.
