The Clermont County Public Defender’s Office represents people not able to afford a lawyer in criminal and other cases for which they could go to jail. These cases include felonies, misdemeanors, and juvenile cases. In order to be eligible for representation by a public defender, the person must be indigent – that is, without assets or income sufficient to afford a lawyer as determined by current guidelines. To show indigency, an applicant must fill out a Financial Disclosure Form, which can be found here.
What We Don’t Do
We don’t represent on civil cases, such as lawsuits, divorces, custody, child support modifications, probate, employment disputes, bankruptcies, or anything for which you cannot be incarcerated.
