CAPITAL TRIALS POSITIONS in KENTUCKY
AGENCY DESCRIPTION:
Public defenders in Kentucky work for a state agency called the Department of Public Advocacy (DPA).  The Kentucky DPA is recognized as a model state-wide public defender system, representing individuals at both trial and post-trial levels.  Its training program is also known as one of the best in the country.  Newly-hired public defenders are provided over 150 hours of training in their first year in programs designed to get them on their feet practicing skills as well as becoming experts in Kentucky’s criminal law.   
 
Each office employs an Alternative Sentencing Worker who assists attorneys by developing a plan to better serve clients suffering from addictions and/or mental health issues.  We serve the Commonwealth of Kentucky by protecting the rights of its poorest citizens.   We seek to employ dedicated and highly motivated individuals with a strong desire to serve those who often do not have a voice in the justice system.  We seek individuals who will enrich our agency and our practice by sharing their varied perspectives and approaches.
