Welcome to the USVI Federal Public Defender website.
Pursuant to the Criminal Justice Act (CJA), 18 U.S.C. §3006A, our office represents indigent defendants before the United States District Court of the Virgin Islands, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.
Our mission is to provide high quality legal representation for our clients. Our attorneys vigorously defend individuals accused of a variety of federal offenses. We are committed to ensuring that the right to counsel, which is guaranteed by the Sixth Amendment and CJA, is enforced on behalf of individuals who cannot afford counsel.
We also serve as a resource for the District’s CJA Panel Attorneys and local criminal defense bar by staying on the forefront of important changes affecting the federal criminal justice system, as well as issues that affect our clients’ successful defense.
This website provides useful links and information for clients, their family, and CJA attorneys. It also contains information about and for our staff. Use the menu above and to the left to access the appropriate page(s).
The panel above and to the right is where we will make announcements about employment opportunities, CJA programs, and CLE seminars. Check back periodically if these items interest you.
