The Office of the Federal Public Defender in the Western District of Virginia will be closed Thursday, December 24th and Friday, December 25th in observance of the federal holiday. We look forward to serving you upon our return.
Everyone has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and our office is no exception. Because of the pandemic, we are changing the way we work. Our physical offices are closed to protect our staff and the public, but we continue to work remotely. If you need to reach us, please email or call. If you don’t get an answer, leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
We are continuing to work on cases. 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 and understanding.
