San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 10, 2012
Jeffrey Kaloustian, a San Francisco criminal attorney with Summit Defense Attorneys, is actively engaged in defending the Occupy Movement in the Bay Area. Through the National Lawyers Guild and the newly-formed Occupy Legal collective, Mr. Kaloustian is providing pro bono legal support to Occupy arrestees on both sides of the San Francisco Bay in the form of jail visits, representation at arraignments, and coordination of communication with arrestees regarding the status of District Attorney charging decisions. According to court documents, Mr. Kaloustian has also taken on two full-representation pro bono cases in Oakland stemming from the Occupy protests in October and November, including defending “Real-Life Superhero“ Roy Sorvari on a felony “obstructing an officer” charge. He also represents the three-person crew of Aquapy Oakland, who received citations in December for boating on Oakland’s Lake Merritt without a permit.
Summit Defense's clients are typically financially successful people who can afford to hire one of the Bay Area's top criminal defense attorneys. Therefore, Mr. Kaloustian appreciates the opportunity to help those with more limited resources. Mr. Kaloustian remains steadfast in his commitment to the core principles of justice for all - regardless of the circumstances or their financial means.
Mr. Kaloustian, a San Francisco criminal defense attorney with a track record of human rights advocacy for economic justice and freedom of expression, finds defending the Occupy movement a natural fit. His Occupy-related work has led to extensive print media coverage as well as participation in two radio programs on Berkeley’s KPFA radio 94.1 FM. Mr. Kaloustian was inspired by the convictions of Occupy protesters and took their message to the streets and foreclosed homes of San Francisco, challenging the destructive influence of reckless corporate greed. He continues to show his unwavering commitment to social justice, legally supporting the Occupy movement free of charge.
