Updated policy regarding investigator usage for Tier 1 and Tier 2 assignments
Within 48 hours of assignment of a Tier 1 or Tier 2 offense, assigned counsel should select an investigator to assist with preparing a defense unless assigned counsel chooses to opt-out.

If assigned counsel chooses to opt out, a detailed explanation is needed on the Request for Investigator Services/Opt-Out form.

This does not preclude attorneys assigned to Tiers 3 & 4 from investigator usage to prepare a defense.
Standard 2 - Initial Interview
Standard 3 - Investigation and Experts
NOTE: We recommend that all attorneys, investigators, and experts familiarize themselves with our Standard 3 Policy prior to requesting services as an attorney or applying to our program as an investigator/expert service vendor.
That policy can be found on our Policies & Procedures page and HERE

Request for Appeal Regarding Investigator/Expert Services

We have a courtesy list of Investigators and Experts who have worked with us on our Additional Resources page. We will be updating these courtesy resources periodically as new investigators and experts agree to our policy and fee schedules and/or apply to our roster independently.
