The Wayne County Public Defender’s Office is CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in an attempt to limit the spread of the virus, the Wayne County Public Defender’s Office is not currently open to the public. We will be intermittently available by phone at 315-946-7472 9 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday.

We have an emergency skeleton crew that will be opening files for those clients who are newly placed in jail on criminal matters and/or charged with parole violations.

All other criminal court matters in both Wayne County Court and all the Town and Village Justice Courts have been adjourned until May 2020.

If you are currently a client of our office, we will be in touch with you at the earliest opportunity prior to your Court date to make sure you will be in contact with your lawyer prior to your next Court appearance. If you need to open a file, please contact the office the week of April 6th and we may be able to make arrangements to open a file at that time.

Thank you for your patience while we all work together to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Andrew D. Correia, Esq.– Public Defender 3/23/2020
