Welcome to MCAD’s Website!

Marion County Association of Defenders is a non-profit consortium of criminal defense attorneys.  Our organization contracts with the state to bring the best possible service to the indigent clients navigating the Marion County Circuit Court system.  Unlike a public defenders office, all of our members are private contractors working from their own offices, taking court appointed cases in addition to retained cases.  Our attorneys are held to, and hold themselves to, a high standard of service delivery to their clients, the courts, and the State of Oregon.
