Caleb Kruckenberg is litigation counsel for the New Civil Liberties Alliance (NCLA). Caleb has broad legal experience, often adverse to the government. He developed his principled opposition to the administrative state from his experiences as a criminal defense attorney after witnessing one too many prosecutions arising from technical violations of impenetrable regulations.
Before joining NCLA, Caleb represented clients at both the trial and appellate level. He began his career as an Assistant District Attorney in the Appeals Bureau of the New York County District Attorney’s Office.
Most recently, he worked as a criminal defense and civil rights attorney in Philadelphia, and as an advocate for criminal justice reform for the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
Caleb has tried cases before juries and argued appellate matters all over the country, sometimes in the same week. He received his J.D., cum laude, from Temple University, Beasley School of Law.
