The Defender Program previously overseen by the circuit court administrator has transitioned to the newly created Office of the Public Defender.   Nathaniel C. Perry, III has been appointed Chief Public Defender by the Genesee County Board of Commissioners.   The new office is located in the County’s Administration building and is responsible for providing legal representation to all individuals charged with a crime in Genesee County who cannot afford an attorney

Attorneys who are licensed to practice law in the State of Michigan and whose primary office is located in Genesee County are eligible to apply for the felony roster.  Exceptions with respect to location of primary professional residence are reviewed by the Chief Public Defender.

Attorneys interested in applying for the felony roster must submit an application and attend an orientation session.

Questions regarding the Office of Public Defender may be directed to the Chief Public Defender at the above address or by calling 810.257.3484.
