Why Work at the Office of the Public Defender, 15th Judicial Circuit?

Here is what current and former Assistant Public Defenders had to say:

"The Public Defender leads by example! Fighting for our clients is priority #1! We prioritize our clients' myriad of needs and we are shown how to do that inside and outside the courtroom. We attack a client’s case on the offensive, rather than just the defensive. We also focus on our clients as human beings with a lifetime of experiences."

"I appreciate working in the warm atmosphere of mutual respect and purpose fostered by Carey and her team."

"I love this office because it has given me the tools I need to be an effective fighter for the people who most need a champion."

"Teamwork - one for all and all for one! We all have each other's backs."

"PD15 - the best place to learn because of outstanding training and leaders leading by example!"
