Do I qualify for the services of a court appointed lawyer?

To qualify for a court appointed attorney, you must 1.) be facing a jail sentence, and 2.) are unable to financially afford to retain an attorney at the customary rate charged in this community for the offense you are charged with. The Sparks Municipal Court provides an application for the services of a court appointed private attorney to defend all defendants who provide information establishing that they cannot afford an attorney. Once the information is completed, the Judge will review it and determine, based upon your financial situation whether to appoint an attorney to represent you.
