A career as a public defender with GPDC offers attorneys at all experience levels the ability to realize these goals in a community of committed, inspiring lawyers who are also some of the best legal minds in the State of Georgia and the nation. Our work is challenging but it is extremely rewarding and extraordinarily crucial.
Together, we make a difference in Georgia one person at a time.
Our public defenders have the opportunity to combine their dedication to the representation of indigent clients with zealous litigation skills to provide exceptional representation. Public defenders strive to be the most learned attorney in the courtroom — excellent communicators, dynamic in their advocacy, professional in their relationships with clients and their interaction with the courts. Our attorneys have the benefit of immediate exposure to litigation and the ability to work in a fast-paced, team-oriented environment.
To support our community of attorneys, we offer exceptional training opportunities, career cultivation, and the ability to qualify for the federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness program.
