How do I obtain the services of a Public Defender?
The Public Defender’s Office can only represent people who qualify. A person’s eligibility will be determined based on household income and assets. To see if you qualify, you must visit our office and speak with one of our personnel. If you qualify, you will then be set up for an interview with one of our investigators who must obtain important information from you. You will then be assigned to a public defender.
