The Council employs research attorneys who provide research assistance, technical support, and consultation to our members on their indigent defense cases. This assistance includes legal research, referrals to expert witnesses, brainstorming, and consultation regarding strategy and tactics
If you are a public defender needing assistance, technical support, or consultation on a court-appointed matter, please submit a request to our research attorneys by completing the Research Request Form below or by calling 317-232-5505 for assistance. Our research staff attempt to respond to every request on the same business day it is received. However, during times of high volume, a response can take 1 to 2 business days.
