Katy Dyer is the director of holistic defense at the Capital Area Private Defender Service (CAPDS) in Austin, TX. In this episode, she speaks to us about how indigent clients are provided with counsel in a city, like Austin, where no state-funded public defender service exists. CAPDS is revolutionizing how people charged with crimes in Travis County obtain adequate legal representation for their cases.
