How to Apply

To schedule an intake appointment with an attorney from the Public Defender’s Office, call 610-344-6940, M-F, 8:30am-4:30pm.

At your appointment, you will meet with an intake investigator who will determine if you financially qualify for an attorney.

You must bring as many of the documents from the list as possible.

The intake investigators will also take information about you and your case.

All information you provide to the intake investigator will be kept confidential by the Public Defender’s Office.

If your court date is scheduled before your intake appointment, you must contact the court and let them know that you have an intake appointment scheduled, and request a continuance.
