APPELLATE RULE 4: SELF-REPRESENTED ON APPEAL

A defendant appealing his or her misdemeanor conviction must be represented by an attorney. If a defendant cannot afford to hire his or her own attorney, he or she may file a Request for Appointment of Counsel, along with Judicial Council Form No. MC-210 , “Defendant’s Financial Statement on Eligibility for Appointment of Counsel and Reimbursement and Record on Appeal at Public Expense.” If the Court determines he or she meets the requisite indigency standard, he or she will be appointed an attorney.
