Indigent Defense

Gratiot County Indigent Defense oversees the standards and budgets set forth by the Michigan Indigent Defense Commission.

Indigent Defense reviews requests for appointed counsel that used to be handled by the court, and appoints attorneys to those cases that qualify.

If you are seeking an appointed attorney or you have any questions, feel free to call or email Interim Indigent Defense Administrator Ryan Pellerito or Indigent Defense Administrative Assistant Stephanie Fussman.

Any complaints can be submitted to the Indigent Defense Administrator or to the Michigan Indigent Defense Commission by using the Michigan Indigent Defense Commission Complain Form.
