Office of Assigned Counsel

Director: Letty Alvarez-Gubitosi

Promissory Notes

After the screening process, a person is deemed INDIGENT AND ABLE TO CONTRIBUTE if he/she is unable to pay the anticipated cost of counsel for the matter before the court because available funds are less than the anticipated cost of counsel, but sufficient for the person to pay a portion of that cost.

A person found INDIGENT AND ABLE TO CONTRIBUTE shall be required to execute a promissory note at the time counsel is appointed.
