How do I retain a public defender?

There are guidelines that the court must follow in order to qualify you for a public defender. If you meet the guidelines, the court will appoint a public defender for you. If you have not been appointed a public defender and would like to see if you qualify, you may file an Affidavit and Application for a Court-Appointed Lawyer at your court hearing, which can be provided to you at that time.
