I have a case that I would like to get looked at in the State of North Dakota. I am not however a resident of the state I am all the way in FL. Is it possible to get an appointed attorney. How would I be able to do such a thing ?

  1. A person gets a court-appointed attorney at the beginning of a criminal case, in the state the crime is being prosecuted.

    If you live in Florida and "would like to get a case looked at" then it sounds like you will have to hire a private attorney for an independent review of the case.

  2. If you cannot afford an attorney, you need to apply for a public defender in the County where the crime occurred. You should contact to find out what you must do. Good luck.
