The Harris County Public Defender's Office receives its cases by appointments from judges and is not allowed to choose its clients.  The decision to appoint a Public Defender to a client is the discretion of the court to which the case is assigned.


Judges also may assign private attorneys to represent indigent defendants and juveniles. Those lawyers are not associated with this office, but must meet minimum qualifications in order to receive appointments.
