The Ben Levick Sullivan Investigator Fellowship, launching in 2014, will be an integral part of fulfilling the Orleans Public Defender’s (OPD) mission to give every client zealous, client-centered representation. Ben came to OPD with the first class of intern investigators post-Katrina in 2007. He fell in love with OPD, its clients, New Orleans, and all of his committed and talented colleagues. He returned as a staff investigator, then as law clerk, and it was his ambition to return as a staff attorney. Tragically, during his second year at Tulane Law School, he was killed. In his memory, his family began a fund to establish an investigator fellowship at OPD to carry on the vital work that gave Ben so much joy and that he did with such dedication.
