How do I get a court-appointed attorney? If you think you may qualify for a court appointed attorney because of low income, you need to fill out a Financial Affidavit, which you may obtain from the Clerk of the District Court. A Judge will decide whether you financially qualify for court appointed counsel. Court appointed counsel is available only in Criminal and Contempt cases where it is possible that the Court could impose a jail sentence. You will be required to repay the court appointed attorney fees as ordered by the Court.
