Clark County is responsible for providing legal representation in Superior Court and District Court cases where the federal or state constitutions or state statutes, case law, or court rules mandate the provision of counsel at government expense. All public defense legal services currently are provided by private attorneys (non-county employees). The majority of services are provided pursuant to formal county contracts. All such contracts are considered contracts with independent contractors for professional services.
Clark County is accepting applications for one-year (January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019) contracts for multiple public defense case types. Fore more information, please click here.
