Rule 5.1. Appointed Counsel; Compensation
When a defendant is entitled to appointed counsel pursuant to Rule 6.1(b), Arizona Rules of Criminal Procedure, the Court will appoint the Public Defender. If it is determined that the Public Defender cannot be appointed, the Court will appoint the Legal Defender. If neither the Public Defender nor the Legal Defender can be appointed, the Court will appoint the Legal Advocate or any other available public defense agency. If no public defense agency can be appointed, the Court will appoint private counsel under contract with the county to provide indigent defense legal services. The rate of compensation for court-appointed private counsel and related professional support services will be established by the Court pursuant to A.R.S. § 13-4013(A) and administered by the county through its indigent defense contract. The Court will not review claims for compensation by appointed private counsel or claims for related expenses except as provided in the county contract.
