KENDRA'S LAW CONTACTS

Here are people to call if you think someone could benefit from AOT and meets the criteria.

If you want someone admitted to the AOT program, you are going to have to fight hard and be persistent. If you are not able/willing to do that, and you have the resources, file a petition yourself. Following are people you can try to cajole into letting someone into the program, but because Commissioner Hogan does not support the program, these people do not have the resources they need. Thank you.

These contacts may become dated. Theoretically there is an up to date list here: http://bi.omh.ny.gov/aot/about?p=aot-contacts
