Join the Yale Capital Assistance Project for a conversation with alum and veteran capital defense attorney Ed Ungvarsky. Mr. Ungvarsky graduated from Yale Law School in 1993 and clerked for the Honorable Frank M. Johnson, Jr., on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. He then worked as a public defender, focusing on criminal appeals and federal and state habeas cases before joining the DC Public Defender Service as a trial attorney, supervising trial attorney, special counsel for forensic DNA and forensic sciences, and finally the chief of the trial division. Between 2009 and 2018, Mr. Ungvarsky led the Northern Virginia Capital Defender Office, which represents individuals facing the death penalty. He now runs a private criminal defense practice in Northern Virginia.
