Corbin Brewster has been selected to become the next head of the Tulsa County Public Defender's office.

He replaces Rob Nigh who stepped down earlier this summer because of health issues.

In a statement, Brewster said, “I am humbled and honored to be selected as the next Tulsa County Public Defender…Replacing Rob Nigh as Tulsa County Public Defender is a tall order. Rob has been a tremendous leader of the Public Defender’s office during his tenure…I aim to preserve the forward momentum achieved at the officer over the last several years.”

Brewster said he excited to get back to what he considers “the honorable work of representing indigent criminal defendants.”

Brewster, 35, is the son of Tulsa attorney Clark Brewster and currently works at his father's law firm.

Before that, he worked for the Oklahoma Indigent Defense Capital Trial Division.

He graduated law school in 2008 and takes over as chief public defender next month.
