Due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis, click the hyperlink for criminal courthouses that remain closed. Court business continues to be limited and many cases have continued by the clerk’s office. Be aware that you must wear a face covering in order to enter a Connecticut courthouse and that physical access to the Public Defender’s office is limited for safety. Public defender staff in the courthouses are available by phone and other means of electronic communication. Please go to www.jud.ct.gov to see where your case will be heard or to check for your continuance dates, as you may have difficulty contacting your lawyer during this time. If you have a question about your case, please contact the Public Defender office at the open courthouse for your jurisdiction. If there is an emergency, you can contact the Office of Chief Public Defender at 860 509 6400.
