ZEALOUS ADVOCACY WITH INTEGRITY
PROMOTING EQUAL JUSTICE FOR EVERYONE
PROTECTING CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS

"Public defenders stand alone, armed only with their wits, training, and dedication. Inspired by their clients' hope, faith, and trust, they are the warriors and valkyries of those desperately in need of a champion.  Public defenders, by protecting the downtrodden and the poor, shield against infringement of our protections and, in reality, protect us all."

- Hightower v. State, 592 So.2d 689 (Fla. 3rd DCA 1991)​​
