Eli Jacobsen joined SCPDA in 2016 after working as a public defender at Thurston County Public Defense. Eli earned his B.A. at The Evergreen State College and his J.D. at Seattle University School of Law. During law school, Eli worked as a legal intern at SCPDA.
“I became a public defender because my father was charged with a felony before I was born. The great legal representation he received is the reason I was able to grow up in a happy and stable home, and I want to provide the same level of representation for anyone facing a criminal charge.”
