In Gideon v. Wainwright (1963), the Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution requires the states to provide defense attorneys to criminal defendants charged with serious offenses who cannot afford lawyers themselves. In Arizona, the Court makes the determination of indigency and orders appointment of counsel. The office is not permitted to take private clients or assume representation of a client without appointment by the Court.

In Arizona, a felony is an offense that has a potential punishment of one year or more in the Arizona Department of Corrections (prison).
