As legal director for the Public Justice Center, a nonprofit legal services organization dedicated to protecting and expanding the rights of people living in poverty, Debra Gardner has served as lead advocate in a wide range of impact litigation and other advocacy, including national and company-wide collective and class action suits concerning wage and hour violations and employment discrimination. Among her many responsibilities, Ms. Gardner has coordinated the National Coalition for a Civil Right to Counsel, an association of individuals and organizations committed to ensuring meaningful access to the courts for all through the implementation of a right to counsel in civil cases, sometimes know informally as "civil Gideon".
