2012 Annual Report

2012-cover-12012 Year In Review

As public defenders, we often compare our work to fighting a war - a war to guarantee the Constitutional right to counsel for   every poor person in Orleans Parish. Each day OPD is on the front lines, doing battle in that war. In 2012, OPD faced one of its toughest battles. Budget shortfalls, layoffs, restrictions of services and increasing caseloads tested our commitment and made us question what we fight for.
