The Law Office of the Public Defender is committed to making our web site accessible to all our users. Our website is currently under review and redesign if necessary to make sure that they meet or exceed the requirements of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

Many of our web pages currently meet the accessibility standards as well as the Web Content accessibility guidelines requirements. Furthermore, the Law Office of the Public Defender continues to work on making all web pages accessible to its users.

Thank you for your patience through this redesign process.

Many of the documents on the Law Office of the Public Defender website are in HTML or ASCII formats. These formats are generally accessible to people who use screen readers. We also have a small number of documents in PDF format.

Publications in PDF format can only be viewed and printed using the Adobe Acrobat Reader version 4.0 or higher. You can download and get help using the Acrobat Reader at the Adobe Systems, Inc. website. The downloadable Acrobat Reader software is available at NO CHARGE from Adobe.

People using screen-reading devices generally are unable to read documents directly in PDF format unless they have an accessibility plug-in installed on their system along with the Adobe Acrobat Reader. This plug-in is available at no charge from Adobe. Adobe also has online tools that will convert PDF files to HTML on request. To get the plug-in and latest news about Adobe’s accessibility tools and services, visit the Adobe Downloads site.
