Defending America's promise of justice for all.



Working for the Maricopa County Office of the Public Defender offers a collaborative and supportive work environment in the heart of the fifth largest metropolitan area in the country, while providing competitive pay with a low cost of living. Additionally, because our office is a part of the County’s workforce, we have excellent benefits and County-wide programs to encourage overall health and well-being. Our office is also committed to creating a culture of conviviality, where you can participate in outside the office activities like hikes, service projects, and picnics and in-office activities like potlucks and take your child to work day. Working for our office means you will be able to participate in the meaningful work of protecting people’s constitutional rights and delivering America’s promise of justice for all.
