Representing Indigent Individuals

The Schenectady County Conflict Defender’s Office endeavors to provide quality legal representation in defense of the indigent criminally accused and indigent petitioners and respondents in Family Court.  The Conflict Defender's Office ensures that their legal rights are upheld without regard to economic or social situations and without regard to the nature of the accusation against them. 

The Conflict Defender’s Office provides mandated indigent legal representation when a conflict of interest disqualifies the Public Defender’s Office from representing the client.  In order to qualify for services, clients must complete an application and return it to The Conflict Defender’s Office, 330 Broadway Schenectady, New York, 12305.
