Evaluation of the Public Defender Office: Clark County, Nevada

NLADA was contracted to evaluate current practices and recommend alternatives for improving the efficient use of attorneys and staff in the Clark County Public Defender Office (CCPDO) of Las Vegas, Nevada. This 2003 report determined that the majority of the problems preventing the office from providing adequate representation in an effective and cost-efficient manner were created in years past, creating a longstanding institutional culture that placed a priority on attorney autonomy over the collective health of the organization.
