    I have been working at San Francisco Public Defender full-time (more than 10 years)


    The people that work in this office are amazing. They are dedicated and extremely compassionate. I have never met a more inspiring group of individuals in my life who often place their clients' needs above their own.


    The work can be very stressful at times. You deal with many human scenarios that are painful, tragic and heart-wrenching. In addition, when you are in trial, your personal life basically stops. To do great trial work, you have to put all your energies (mind, body and soul) into the trial because the client's life depends upon this type of dedication. This is truly a very heavy burden.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please never lose sight of the many sacrifices that your staff makes on behalf of the office clients. Please stay focused on the complex process of representation and not just the results.
