The Public Defender's Office handles criminal cases in State Court and Superior Court. Defendants with a juvenile case should contact Juvenile Court for assistance. The Public Defender does not handle civil cases and does not take traffic court cases.
To determine if someone is eligible for assistance through the Public Defender's Office, they must come in, in person, for assessment. Eligibility is determined by income.
The Public Defender is appointed by the Chief Superior Court Judge. The Public Defender is Steven Purvis.
Please call the office to make an appointment for assessment to assure an attorney is available.
