Capital Area Private Defender Service


CAPDS is currently accepting applications for our misdemeanor mentorship program.  

CAPDS is committed to offering all mentees a high-quality experience.  After an initial training period our program relies on mentees representing clients with the support of experienced mentors and CAPDS staff. The mentorship program begins with a intensive training from September 28th - September 30th.  Our programs lasts for six months.  Our misdemeanor program will assist those who do not meet the minimum qualifications for our panel.
