The Henderson Public Defender's Office is contracted by the Henderson Municipal Court to provide legal counsel for the representation of indigent defendants. This office is separate and independent from the Henderson Municipal Court. The attorneys performing the service of Public Defender are licensed to practice law in the State of Nevada and qualified to provide legal representation of indigent defendants, including cases on appeal as assigned by the Court.
The Public Defender may only be appointed if the City is seeking a jail sentence on a charge and the defendant meet the Federal guidelines for appointment of a Public Defender. If no jail time is requested, a Public Defender will not be made available. If the Court appoints the Public Defender on a case, that attorney will be present at the arraignment, trial, and sentencing.
