The Public Defender's Office

Douglas C. Roger, Jr., Esq.

First Assistant:
Francis L. Zarrilli, Esq.

Sweney Building
313 W. Front Street
Media, PA 19063

The Public Defender’s Office provides legal assistance to persons who are accused of criminal offenses by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and who cannot afford the expense of presenting a defense to the charges against them.

The department employs fifty-four attorneys who are supported by various paralegals, investigators, and other staff. It represents several thousand clients each year who are charged with crimes ranging from retail theft offenses to homicide in the District Justice Courts, the Court of Common Pleas and the Appellate Courts of Pennsylvania. In addition, the Public Defender’s Office represents young people who appear in the Juvenile Court of Delaware County, and clients charged with contempt in Family Court.

The office uses the latest in computer technology and retains the services of expert witnesses in the fields of psychiatry, ballistics, medicine, etc., in the course of its work.
