Public Defender

Mission Statement
The Spokane County Public Defender's Office provides effective representation to individuals entitled to but unable to afford legal counsel. The office's mission is to provide quality, professional, and independent representation of all clients appointed to the office.

Some cases originally assigned to this office may be re-assigned to a completely separate Public Defender office, Counsel for Defense (CFD). That office is located on the 4th floor of the main courthouse annex. The phone number there is 509-477-4900.
