Office of Defense Services named 2020 Top Workplace in Delaware

For the 10th year in a row, the News Journal recognized the Office of Defense Services as a top workplace in Delaware.

The honor is a testament to our commitment to safeguarding our clients’ constitutional rights and ensuring that our clients receive the best possible representation.

As in previous years, the Office of Defense Services is the only state agency to have been ranked in the survey. This year the ODS was ranked number 4 in the mid-size company category.

We’re only a ‘Top Workplace’ because of our talented employees. It is their daily sense of duty to our clients, as well as their shared passion for indigent defense work, that allows our office to thrive the way it does.

This honor is solely because of their exemplary work, and their day in, day out contribution to a positive workplace environment that embraces a shared idealism and drive.

Public defense is often grueling, unforgiving, and underappreciated work, but we wouldn’t want it any other way. To steal a phrase coined by our colleagues in San Francisco: we’re the best representation money can’t buy.
