Jim Walden is ranked in the top 30 of City & State New York’s 2020 “Law Power 100″ list. The feature recognizes the most powerful people in New York politics working in law.
Jim Walden has a knack for taking on high-profile cases with political implications. The former federal prosecutor battled against the closure of a Brooklyn hospital with then-mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio and persuaded Gov. Andrew Cuomo to allocate funds to the New York City Housing Authority. He represented a staffer who accused then-state Sen. Jeff Klein of forcibly kissing her. And he successfully challenged the creation of a state commission on prosecutorial conduct.
