Learn more about the CJA

The Criminal Justice Act (CJA) provides legal services for any person charged with a federal offense who is financially unable to obtain legal representation. The Federal Public Defender represents most of the financially eligible defendants in Nevada. If the Federal Public Defender is unable to represent a defendant due to a specific circumstance, a private attorney who is a member of the CJA Panel is appointed to represent that person. Attorneys selected for the CJA Panel are qualified for appointment by demonstrating their experience and knowledge of the federal system and Local Rules.
