Florida Law ensures that those who cannot afford to hire an attorney be provided with an Assistant Public Defender at a reduced cost. If there is a conflict in the Public Defender's representation in your case, you will be assigned an Assistant Regional Counsel.


Below are the links to the sites to the Office of the Public Defender and the Office of the Criminal Conflict and Civil Regional Counsel:


Kathleen A. Smith, Public Defender, 20th Judicial Circuit


Ita M. Neymotin, Regional Counsel, 2nd District
