The Travis County Criminal Court Judges have approved a managed assigned counsel program for attorneys interested in representing adults accused of misdemeanors or felonies in Travis County. Travis County has selected the Capital Area Private Defender Service ("CAPDS") to establish meaningful standards for quality representation, ensure assigned counsel exceeds these standards, oversee the work of assigned counsel and provide educational and mentoring services to support those assigned to represent indigent clients.

View the Fair Defense Plan for more information.

CAPDS will solicit applications during open enrollment periods but may also add attorneys as need dictates. Interested attorneys should contact CAPDS at (512) 774-4208 with questions. Attorney fee schedules are listed below:
