    Question Answer
    How do I request a court-appointed attorney? Court-appointed attorney issues for people in jail will be addressed no later than 48 hours after arrest.
    If the defendant posts bond before that issue can be addressed, and the defendant has not already hired an attorney before the Initial Appearance docket (within 2-3 weeks after the case is filed), then the matter will be addressed with a magistrate at the Initial Appearance setting.

    For more information please refer to the Office of Court Appointments.
