Administrative Staff

Administrative Staff Defenders provide compassionate and competent attention to our clients’ needs. They assist visitors and applicants for our services. As a part of a multidisciplinary team, they work with lawyers, investigators, social workers and paralegals on a daily basis to help them provide effective representation to our clients. They are the face to our visitors and the voice on the phone to callers. They use quality communication to cultivate relationships with courthouse staff and other members of the criminal legal system. They also maintain our case database and client files. Our administrative staff are truly the backbone of the Colorado Public Defender’s office.

OSPD also employs a small but mighty group of discovery clerks who support trial offices in processing “discovery” (electronic material like police reports and body worn camera provided to public defenders by prosecutors). Discovery clerks work remotely and in some circumstances on a part-time basis.
