Our Work

The Office of State Public Defender provides effective assistance of counsel to indigent persons who by law are entitled to representation by an attorney for a variety of cases—not only those accused of crimes, but parents and children who are experiencing the child welfare system, elderly people losing autonomy over their affairs, and mentally ill people facing commitment. Public defenders have the same obligations toward the client and their case as do private attorneys.

OPD has four divisions with over 20 offices statewide dedicated to providing zealous and effective legal services with a focus on quality client-centered representation.
