Welcome to the Maricopa County Office of Contract Counsel
Why Contract Counsel?
The Office of Contract Counsel is responsible for providing attorneys to individuals who are
entitled to representation at County expense and who cannot be represented by one of the
County indigent representation offices due to legal or ethical conflict, workload constraints
or administrative issues. The Office of Contract Counsel (OCC) contracts with private attorneys
who practice in many areas of the law, including: criminal defense, criminal and juvenile appeals, post-conviction relief,
probate, mental health, juvenile dependency and juvenile delinquency.
