Who is my attorney?

As the County Public Defender, Delphia T. Simpson is the attorney officially assigned to represent all clients of the Office. She is assisted by a highly skilled staff of 13 experienced trial lawyers who are also dedicated to public defense as a career. They are further augmented by 60 to 80 volunteer student lawyers and investigators who are also committed to public defense as a calling. All of these regular and volunteer staff personnel are assigned by Ms. Simpson to work on your case as a team whereby all of the resources of the Office can be readily available to provide you with top notch legal representation at all times. Ms. Simpson will also select and monitor one of her regular staff lawyers to lead the team that will work on your case, and that experienced trial lawyer will become the primary attorney responsible for your case.
