The Marion County Association of Defenders (MCAD) is a private non-profit organization consisting of approximately forty attorneys. In contrast to a public defenders’ office, these attorneys are not employed by MCAD, the court, the state, or the county. Each MCAD attorney is a member of a private law firm and agrees to handle court appointed cases in Marion County under MCAD’s contract with the State of Oregon. Many MCAD attorneys handle other types of cases in addition to their court appointed criminal cases. Our attorneys are committed to providing the highest possible level of service to their clients.
