As the global effect of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, The Alternate Public Defender is firmly committed to the health and safety of everyone. The Department of Public Health has emphasized the importance of social distancing. Here at the Alternate Public Defender's office we are adhering to this policy by taking the necessary steps to scale down our staff while maintaining our core mission of providing outstanding legal representation to our clients. Our court services remain ongoing. Walk-in services are suspended until further notice.

Given the current crisis, all of our offices are temporarily closed to the public. If you have any questions regarding your case, please contact your attorney, or our main contact number 213-974-6626.

Please note: Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Tani Cantil-Sakauye has declared a judicial emergency in the Los Angeles Superior Court due to the rapid spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). This emergency measure was taken to flatten the curve of COVID-19 which means that many criminal and delinquency cases will be continued in order to mitigate the potential spread of the virus. Court hours and locations will be impacted as the duration of this unprecedented emergency is unknown. Please refer to for court information.
