Applications for Placement on List of Indigent Defense Services Providers in Nevada

The Nevada Department of Indigent Defense Services encourages indigent defense services providers (as defined by NRS 180.004) to be placed on the list of qualified contract and appointed counsel for the rural counties. The rural counties are currently in the process of building their Plans for the Provision of Indigent Defense Services and are seeking additional attorneys for their lists.

Please see below for the information on how to apply for the Rural County lists, the Clark County list, and the Washoe County list. The application does not take long to fill out.
