Welcome to the Lycoming County Public Defender's Office
.

We provide legal representation to those who are financially unable to retain legal services in matters where counsel is constitutionally guaranteed.


History

In 1968, the Pennsylvania General Assembly enacted the Public Defender Act as a result of the 1963 decision in Gideon v Wainright. This act specified the duties of the Public Defender and established the Office of the Public Defender throughout Pennsylvania.
