No Legal Advice  If you have a question for the District Defender, feel free to drop me a line, however this web site is not for giving legal advice about a case or a legal opinion of any kind.  The presence of this Email link does not represent any offer to handle a case (our cases are court appointed) and is not a solicitation for your questions. Talk to a lawyer familiar with your case for legal advice!  If you have a general question about the Public Defenders or otherwise, that’s the purpose here.

Of course we make no guarantee when or if we will answer!  Thanks!
