Human Resources

The LOPD believes that having a diverse and inclusive workforce is invaluable. We strive for our staff to be representative of everyone we serve. We respect, value and celebrate the unique attributes, characteristics, and perspectives that make each person who they are. We also believe that bringing diverse individuals together allows us to more effectively address the criminal justice issues that face our community. Therefore, we are committed to recruiting, training, promoting and supporting all employees regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability or religion so we can provide the highest quality representation for our clients. This commitment to appreciate our similarities and find strength in our differences allows us to achieve our mission of advocating for the constitutional rights and inherent dignity of our clients..

The re-apply time frame allows applicants to only apply once in a 24 hour time period without any time limitations up until the advertisement closes. For continuous advertisements, applicants may continue to re-apply without any time limitations up until the position has been filled. The Law Offices of the Public Defender will continue to utilize the most current application received, when duplicate applications are submitted.

Applicants cannot make changes/edits to a previously submitted application; however, an applicant may re-apply for an open position. The most recent application received will be used when duplicate applications are submitted. Please note, once a position closes (recruitment ends), an applicant may not re-apply for the position.

The last 15 attachments uploaded are available to attach when applying for a position; applicants only have to upload the attachment if it is new or it was not one of the last 15 documents that have been attached previously.
