The Knox County Public Defender's Community Law Office

The Knox County Public Defender’s Community Law Office (CLO) practices holistic, client-centered representation which seamlessly combines vigorous legal advocacy with robust social services and access to community resources. The integrated structure of the legal and social services departments at the CLO creates a meaningful opportunity to partner with clients to help them stabilize their lives and get out of the criminal justice system. It provides for comprehensive representation that recognizes the interaction between legal, personal and environmental issues and, in contrast to a more traditional lawyer-centered model, emphasizes the collaboration between client, attorney and social worker. The CLO’s model allows us to seek justice, while also preventing crime, reducing recidivism and empowering our clients to become productive members of the community.
