    Mission Statement

    The Pima County Office of Court Appointed Counsel’s (OCAC) mission is to assure that adequate legal representation is afforded to all persons eligible for counsel under Arizona law. OCAC works with the Superior Court, Juvenile Court, Court of Appeals and Justice Courts to assign indigent defense cases to the appropriate office: Public Defender, Legal Defender or Contract Attorney. OCAC determines financial eligibility for court appointed counsel and assesses fees to defray part of the cost of providing indigent defense services.
