Broward Public Defender
We understand there is great concern about the COVID-19 crisis. The Law Office of the Public Defender is working very hard to try to get as many clients as possible out of jail during this public health pandemic. If you are a relative or friend of an in-custody client who has tested positive for COVID-19, you have concerns that an in-custody client may be exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, or you have concerns that an in-custody client may not be receiving appropriate medical care or treatment related to COVID-19 issues only, we have established a special phone number to call. Please call 954-831-8670 for all COVID-19 related calls. This number is for in-custody COVID-19 related issues only.
For out of custody clients or for any other Public Defender in-custody client issues, please continue to call your attorney or their secretary directly. If you do not know the name or phone number to reach your attorney or their secretary please call our main number 954-831-8650.
