THE WAYNE COUNTY PUBLIC DEFENDER OFFICE IS OPEN
We are available by phone at 315-946-7472 9 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday.
For those clients who have already made their first appearance in Court (including at the Centralized Arraignment court at the jail) and been assigned to our office, we will continue to automatically open files without the need to fill out financial qualification paperwork for the time being. Our office will be in touch with you, first by phone, and by mail if necessary, to confirm that we represent you and to set up a phone conference meeting or a face to face meeting with your assigned lawyer prior to your court date.
If you believe there is a need to physically come into the office, please call first and see if the matter can be handled over the phone. If you do come to our location, a facial covering is required in order to enter the building. We also ask ALL people entering our office to fill out a Public Health Contact Information Card. If there is a positive COVID test in the office that triggers the Public Health need to contact trace possible infections. That Contact Information Card is destroyed by shredding 28 days after your visit to the office.
DO NOT COME TO OUR OFFICE IF YOU ARE DISPLAYING SYMPTOMS OF ANY ILLNESS.
If you have already had your case assigned to a Public Defender attorney and would like to speak to that lawyer, please call in and a phone appointment can be arranged if the lawyer is not available to talk at the time of your call.
Thank you for your patience while we all continue to work together to end the spread of COVID-19.
Andrew D. Correia, Esq.– Public Defender 8/24/2020
