Information for Applications
Complete your application by answering all questions and attaching
any riders or other supporting documents that are required. Mail
your completed application to:
Patrick L. McCloskey, Administrator
Assigned Counsel Defender Plan
Nassau County Bar Association
15th & West Streets
Mineola, NY 11501
Your application will be reviewed for completeness and for satisfaction
of the minimum requirements. If it is facially deficient, it will
be returned to you. Your references will be reviewed and some
or all of them may be contacted. An interview will thereafter
be scheduled with the Administrator.
After the interview, you will receive a determination regarding
the panel to which you have applied. If you are approved for one
or more panels, you will receive your first assignment promptly.
If you are denied approval, the reason(s) for the determination
will be given to you.
Panel membership is a privilege, not a right. Upon certification
to the panel, an attorney’s conduct and performance are
regulated by Article 18-B of the County Law, the Rules of the
Appellate Division, and the rules and regulations of the Assigned
Counsel Defender Plan.
