Do you have a Public Defender?

If you do, then you have experts, professionals and even Investigators available to you. We are a CPCS vendor in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Your attorney can make a motion to have a Private Investigator working on your defense.

What does the Committee for Public Counsel Services do?

We provide legal representation in Massachusetts for those unable to afford an attorney in all matters in which the law requires the appointment of counsel. This includes representation in criminal, delinquency, youthful offender, child welfare, mental health, sexually dangerous person and sex offender registry cases, as well as related appeals and post-conviction matters.

Representation is provided by a combination of approximately 500 staff attorneys and 3,000 private attorneys trained and certified to accept appointments. Support for and supervision of these attorneys is provided by the Private Counsel and Public DefenderDivisions (for criminal cases and related matters), the Children and Family Law Division(for child welfare cases), the Youth Advocacy Division (for delinquency, youthful offender, and GCL revocation cases), and the Mental Health Litigation Division (for guardianships and mental health/substance abuse commitments). Additionally, the Immigration Impact Unit provides attorneys within all divisions with training, litigation support and advice in individual cases regarding immigration consequences for noncitizens clients.
