JOSEPH B. YOUNG, ESQ.
“Coming of age during the 1960s’ civil rights advocacy era, I received my law degree and began providing legal services for people discharged from mental health facilities. At that time, disability rights specialists were advocating for supported housing, wrap-around services, psychiatric rehabilitation and self-determination, all of which are still considered best practices today. The court and public benefits systems continue to increase in complexity. I support PLAN|NJ staff as they sort through the labyrinth of rules to gain access to the public entitlements people with disabilities and their families need and deserve.”
- Juris Doctor, Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey – Newark
Executive Director, Disability Rights New Jersey (retired); former Attorney, Community Health Law Project; former Attorney, Department of the Public Advocate, Division of Advocacy for the Developmentally Disabled
