Message From The Administrator

Welcome to the Website of the Nassau County Assigned Counsel Defender Plan. It is my hope that the information you find here will assist you in the representation of your 18B clients.

There is much explanatory information on this website regarding the 18B program, including our policies, procedures and requirements, but there is also a great deal of information that relates to the defense of criminal cases generally, including primers on different areas of law, recent cases, strategies regarding problem areas, sample motions and forms and links to other helpful websites.

If you are not yet a member of our 18B program, please take a minute to review our qualifications. If you fulfill them, and if you have a sincere desire to help the indigent, you can download an application and return it to me at the Nassau County Bar Association. I will act on it immediately. My thanks go out to all of our current panelists, and my regards go out to all others, with the hope that you will join our ranks in the near future.
