Led by Public Defender, Antoinette Taillac, the mission of the Public Defender’s Office is to vigorously protect and defend the rights of indigent clients as guaranteed by the Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Our goal is to provide full and fair legal representation with respect and compassion for all.
Whether we are public defenders, paralegals, investigators, support staff, or social workers, we are all warriors against social injustice and inequality. We work hard and advocate for people in order to restore and affirm their human dignity and values, and to vindicate their legal and human rights.
