*NEW* Attorney Qualification Database (non-capital)
The list of attorneys set forth herein represent those attorneys that have had their Standard E & F Qualification forms verified by the Commission and entered into our database as of 6/30/2020. The fact an attorney’s name or particular qualification is absent from these lists does not mean an attorney is not qualified but that we have either not received their Standard E & F Form, have yet to verify their qualifications, or we received their form after the date this document was updated. If counsel is not on the list, or shows as not yet qualified, the county public defender board or, in counties without a board, the trial judge must have counsel complete a Standard E & F form to verify that counsel is qualified and then the board or judge should submit a copy of that form to the Commission for verification and inclusion on this list.
