About Us

The Office of the State Public Defender (OSPD) provides legal services to people without the financial means to employ private counsel. By legislative mandate, we focus our resources on post-conviction appellate proceedings in death penalty cases. We are responsible for major developments in the areas of capital litigation, due process, right to counsel, confessions, jury selection, search and seizure, sentencing and many other issues.

The work of OSPD is complex and challenging, and presents a unique personal and professional opportunity for those who choose a career in post-conviction criminal defense.
