Welcome to Federal Public Defender - District of South Carolina

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are changing some of our office procedures. Our physical offices are closed to the public, but we continue to work for our clients.  If you need to reach us please email us or directly call the office you are trying to get in touch with (numbers are listed on the Office Info tab above). 

We will continue to communicate with our detained clients, appear in court, and fully represent our clients, even if business is delayed. But our immediate responsibility—everyone’s immediate responsibility—is to slow the spread of the contagion. And we do that by limiting contact with each other and other members of the general public.  Thank you for your patience during this time.
