Public Defender Services Needed

The Trinity County Board of Supervisors invites proposals from attorneys to provide public defender services to indigent defendants in all felony and misdemeanor cases, LPS and probate conservatorships, violation of misdemeanor or felony probation, extradition, contempt of court, and juvenile cases filed under Welfare and Institutions Code Sections 601 or 602. The County is seeking to contract with a firm, association, or consortium of attorneys who will provide primary, and at least two levels of conflict counsel, in felony and misdemeanor cases. The County asks that proposals include methods to reduce costs to the County necessitated by the retention of attorneys outside of the contract due to conflicts. For more information click here
