Mission: To provide independent, effective, high-quality representation to individual clients in the spirit of the Public Defender's Credo and in compliance with the Rules of Professional Conduct. To work interdependently with other professionals in the courts and leaders in the executive, legislative and judicial branches, along with the citizens of the Commonwealth, to advance the interests of our indigent clients and improve the operation of the criminal justice system.

Job Description: The Social Worker is responsible for preparing a holistic, strengths-based assessment of the client’s needs to identify services to meet underlying needs with two goals in mind: first, to diminish the risk of later involvement with the criminal justice system; and, second, to reduce the necessity of incarceration and the exorbitant expenditures required to house people in jails and prisons when more effective and less costly alternatives exist.  The Social Worker also may provide forensic social work services, including mitigation in conjunction with the Assistant Public Defender for the legal disposition of criminal cases.

  • Contacting service providers and making necessary community-based referrals;
  • Presenting written plans, including social history and recommendations to the Court for approval, which may include testifying in court;
  • Coordinating services with clients in lieu of a jail or prison sentence.

Social workers utilize motivational interviewing to increase the client’s propensity for change while working within the attorney-client relationship and under the attorney-client privilege.  Additionally, Social Workers improve coordination and cooperation amongst criminal justice agencies and treatment providers by promoting evidence-based practices and programs, as well as a better understanding of substance abuse, mental illness, and poverty issues.  Social workers will work with local and state level agencies and treatment providers in order to assist client’s re-entry from detention. Social workers will be expected to present oral and written presentations to the courts as part of the defense representation.

Minimum Requirements:  
Education: Graduate of an accredited college and/or university with a Master’s Degree in Social Work required.
