Description

The Grand Traverse County Public Defender’s Office has a local regional office located in Traverse City, MI which aims to ensure the state’s public defense system is fair, cost-effective and constitutional while simultaneously protecting public safety and accountability. The Michigan Indigent Defense Commission (MIDC) must publish minimum standards meant to ensure indigent criminal defendants receive practical assistance of counsel in every Michigan County. Grand Traverse County has adopted a compliance plan that requires the county to develop a group of well-qualified and experienced criminal defense attorneys to provide adequate representation to indigent criminal defendants at every stage of a criminal proceeding in compliance with the MIDC standards. In addition, the office has a responsibility to maintain compliance with MIDC standards and oversee the group of criminal defense attorneys who represent indigent defendants in the 86th District Court and 13th Circuit Court. The privilege of offering representation to those in need is why the law has offered public defense services. Don’t hesitate to contact the Grand Traverse County Public Defender directly if you need further information.
