Why we do what we do, in our team’s own words.
What we do
We defend children charged with juvenile misconduct; and adults charged with misdemeanor, felony or capital crimes. We also represent those involved in CPS and child neglect cases.
The Public Defender’s Office does not decide whether a person is indigent or unable to hire a lawyer. That decision is made by the courts, and the court administration offices. (click here for a list of offices which take applications for appointed lawyers). We do not take applications for court appointed lawyers. In order for us to represent you, you must apply and qualify for a court appointed lawyer. We must be appointed by the jail magistrate or one of the County or District Judges in El Paso County.
Our goal is to provide our clients the best defense. The Public Defender’s Office prides itself in providing client-centered representation to all of our client. In addition, our lawyers are supported by a dedicated professional team of investigators, social workers, a mitigation specialist, and legal support staff.
