The Temporary Regulations of the Nevada Board of Indigent Defense Services became effective on March 5, 2021.
The regulations require attorneys that are providing contract or appointed indigent defense services in Nevada’s rural counties to apply with the Department of Indigent Defense Services. The Department will review the application to ensure that the attorney’s ability, training, and experience match the complexity of the case. Qualified attorneys will be placed on a list of eligible providers that rural counties will use in the creation of their plan for the provision of indigent defense services. The initial plans will be due September 3, 2021. Attorneys are encouraged to apply immediately for inclusion on the list.
If an attorney is interested in being placed on the list of eligible providers, please fill out the web form at https://hal.nv.gov/form/DIDs/Application_with_the_Department_of_Indigent_Defense_Services.
