THE WAYNE COUNTY PUBLIC DEFENDER OFFICE

We are available by phone at 315-946-7472 from 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, please fill out the first page of the Financial Application and submit the form or email to PDeligibility@co.wayne.ny.us.  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.

You may also physically come into our office to drop off or fill out your financial application.  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 it triggers the Public Health requirement 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 or an in person meeting 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 wok together to end the spread of COVID-19.
