Information for Clients

You may apply for representation at Office of the Public Defender locations thorough the state of Maryland. You do not need to apply in the same county or city where you were arrested or where you will go to court. 

If you are incarcerated, you may apply for representation at jails throughout the state including the Baltimore City Detention Center.

It is important that you apply as quickly as possible after you are arrested or charged with a crime. You must apply at least 10 business days before your court date.

If you are not sure if we represent you, please call or visit any office location.  If a family member or loved one needs representation and is incarcerated or hospitalized, please call us today.
