Assigned Counsel

In order to receive assignments through the Commission you must file an application.

The application is based on the minimum requirements set forth in Commission Rule, Chapter 2: Standards for Qualifications of Assigned Counsel. If you are applying for the first time with the Commission, you will have to take the Commission's Minimum Standards Training in the area(s) of practice for which you want to receive assignments prior to becoming eligible. For attorneys with more than three years experience, the rule does provide the Commission with discretion to waive the initial training requirement. Please consult the rule for more information

The application can be completed online and emailed to the Executive Director, john.pelletier@maine.gov, or you can print the application and mail it to: Maine Commission on Indigent Legal Services, 154 State House Station, Augusta, ME 04333.
