Legal - California
I am a public defender in Orange County, with very little prior experience in the mental health arena. I have recently been assigned as the supervising attorney in the mental health unit, and have been trying to gather as much information as possible. Your website has been an invaluable resource and I wanted to thank you for the time and effort you have put into it. Thank you.
