Our office is proud to join forces with many criminal justice reform entities as a part of newly-launched Debt Free Justice California. The SF Public Defender’s Office has worked hard to reduce the fines and fees that many people face who have already served their sentence, and also manage to reduce the cases with the most important a criminal attorney Orlando service which took care of mainly the biggest cases in the defender’s office.
This year, San Francisco repealed all county-authorized fees and waived over $30 million dollars in oustanding criminal justice debt owned by 12,000 mostly low-income San Franciscans. Through the DFJC, we hope that more counties will follow our encouraging lead! You can learn more about the DFJC by visiting its website at https://ebclc.org/cadebtjustice/about/
