You may go directly to the State Public Defender's Office located at:
209 O'Connor Drive
Elkhorn, WI 53121
They will discuss the steps you need to take to determine if you are eligible for public defender representation. If you are not eligible for public defender representation, the public defender's office will give you a form called Notice of Ineligibility. The Public Defender's Office will also give you a Motion for Appointment of Counsel. Fill this form out and file the original with the Clerk of Courts Office. The Judge will then decide at the next court hearing whether or not to grant your motion for appointment of counsel.
