You may contact us by any or all of the following methods:

Telephone:  

(231) 724-6585

When you call us at that number, you will be requested to make a choice.  Is the matter about which you are calling a misdemeanor?  Then you want Extension 1.  Is the matter one involving a felony allegation?  Then please dial Extension 2.  Finally, if the matter involves a family situation such as juvenile delinquency or neglect and/or abuse, please dial Extention 3.  If the matter involves a probate issue involving court ordered inpaitient treatment in a mental health situation, please dial Extention 3 for that matter.

Email:

To send us an email you will need to know the name of your lawyer.  See the list of lawyers below and write a message to him or her.  Be careful in your selection.  Everyone's paperwork lists Fred Johnson as the lawyer.  That is just because he is the director of the Muskegon County Public Defenders.  Mr. Johnson is probably NOT your personal attorney.  If you send your message to him, your lawyer may not receive it.

If you are unsure of who your lawyer is, please see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section of this website.  There you will find out how to figure out who your lawyer is.

Walking, car, bike or bus:

The Muskegon County Public Defenders are housed in two buildings on the old "South Campus" site of Baker College.  While the maps below indicate the site at 155 Apple, there are in fact, two buildings.  The the two buildings are connected by a corridor between them.  165 Apple is the second building and the Public Defenders are on the third floor above the Veteran's Center.  The buildings are west of the Probation Office and East of the County Register of Deeds.  We suggest parking in the large lot behind the buildings using the Pine Street access.  Once in the parking lot you can ask where the buildings are.  Most people will be able to direct you.
