The Office of the State Public Defender provides a Groupsite discussion forum for Iowa indigent defense attorneys.  The site is a meeting place that provides indigent defense attorneys discussion forums, member profiles, file storage and more.  By default, the discussion forums will function as an e-mail listserv with attorneys receiving all posts and comments by e-mail.  Attorneys may also log in to the website and view the forums over the web or review archived discussions.  

This site is provided as a service for SPD employees and contract attorneys to foster improved communication and ultimately quality representation of our indigent client.  The Office of the State Public Defender does not necessarily endorse the statements made or opinions expressed by any person participating on the site.

New contract attorneys will automatically be invited to participate in the Groupsite.  Attorneys may log in, or request activation as members by visiting the website at:
