Our Mission is to provide first quality, effective, ethical legal representation to the clients assigned to us by the federal courts. In order to maintain independence, the Federal Defender, the head of the FPD, is appointed by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. The Federal Public Defender Organization is regulated administratively and financially by the Office of Defender Services, a division of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts in Washington D.C.
