Who is my public defender?
Need to find out which public defender was assigned to your case?
If you do not know who your public defender is contact the Department of Public Defense; email@example.com or 360-964-1591, during regular business hours.
Since the identity of the public defender assigned to your case is confidential information (because it reveals that your economic eligibility if you have a case pending in our office) please be prepared to provide your case number and other personal information to confirm your identity. Information about public defender assignments will not be provided without identity confirmation and also will not be given to other people who call or contact our office on your behalf.
Please do note that it takes at least 48 hours before information about your public defender assignment is entered into the computer, if you were appointed a public defender in the courtroom.
