Damian Spieckerman, PJDC Juvenile Defender of The Year (2018)

PJDC is proud to announce that Damian Spieckerman was recently awarded the 2018 PJDC Defender of the Year Award at the PJDC Annual Roundtable. As a Deputy Public Defender with the Solano County Public Defender’s Office, Damian has spent half of his 15-year career as a public defender advocating for youth in the juvenile delinquency system. He has distinguished himself by his passion for working with youth and providing them with the best possible legal representation. As a result of his extraordinary advocacy, Damian has helped shaped California juvenile delinquency law.

In addition to assisting youth in the delinquency system, he also seeks parole for youthful offenders, many of them former lifers, via post-conviction litigation. Damian also serves on the Solano County Juvenile Justice Commission and frequently represents the Solano County Public Defender’s Office at county-wide and regional juvenile justice events.

PJDC is thrilled to recognize Damian’s outstanding advocacy and commitment to our youth. Congratulations Damian!
