Welcome to the Kitsap County Office of Public Defense

The Kitsap County Office of Public Defense is staffed with outstanding attorneys dedicated to providing very high quality representation to individuals charged with felony crimes.  Additionally, for those cases not handled in-house, which includes approximately one-half of the felonies charged, misdemeanors, juvenile matters, dependencies, and civil contempt hearings, a very highly qualified list of local attorneys are appointed to represent individuals in those matters.

************************************
People are calling and informing individuals that there will be a warrant issued for their arrest for failing to appear for jury duty.  The caller informs the individual that if they pay a fee the warrant will not be issued, but they still need to appear in front of a Judge.  The callers are using the names of attorneys that have either been or are judges in our area.  Please be aware that if a bench warrant was issued for non-appearance for jury duty, the court staff would NEVER call you and request fees be paid over the phone, or otherwise.  If you have questions about missed jury duty please call the Kitsap Co.
Jury Office at 360-337-7166.
The information provided in this area is updated regularly.  We
will do our best to keep you informed of any current scams that may
impact you involving the court system, law enforcement or others we feel warrant posting.
