Court Appointed Attorney

How to obtain a Court Appointed Attorney

You may be entitled to a Court Appointed Attorney at Public expense if you qualify as an indigent person.  An indigent person is one who cannot hire an attorney without causing substantial hardship to himself/herself or dependent family.

If you have been charged with a crime, you may complete an Affidavit of Indigence and Request for Court Appointed Counsel at your first court appearance.  If you qualify, an attorney will be appointed for you.

If you are convicted of a crime, the court may require you to repay some or all of the cost of your defense if it determines you are able.
