Public Defender

The Office of Public Defender primarily represents indigent adult defendants and juveniles with misdemeanor or felony criminal charges. It also represents clients facing involuntary commitment at mental health hearings, persons charged with violating county and state probation or parole, persons charged with violations of the Protection from Abuse Act (PFA’s), and persons facing summary charges where incarceration is a potential sentence. Attorneys routinely appear on behalf of clients at preliminary hearings before Lebanon County District Justices, before the Court of Common Pleas of Lebanon County, and before the Appellate Courts of Pennsylvania.
