About Us

 The San Diego County Public Defender's Office was established in 1988 by county resolution and has since evolved into one of the finest in the nation.  There are office locations throughout the county. 

We provide quality legal assistance to individuals charged with a crime in state court who are financially unable to retain private counsel.
