Welcome to the Public Defenders Office


The Public Defender’s Office of Beaver County represents those individuals who cannot afford private counsel in criminal cases, mental health hearings, summary appeals, juvenile matters and in indirect criminal contempt hearings on violation of protection from abuse orders. In order to be represented, a defendant must complete an application with the department to see if he or she qualifies for its services based upon income guidelines
