Office of Criminal Conflict and Civil Regional Counsel Third Region

RC3 Logo

The Office of Criminal Conflict and Civil Regional Counsel (Regional Counsel) is a State Agency created in 2007 by Senate Bill 1088 to provide legal representation to indigents.

The office provides legal representation in criminal cases that the Public Defender is prohibited by law from taking due to a conflict of interest and in all civil cases involving involuntary civil commitments including guardianships, adult protective services, dependencies and delinquencies, among others.

The Regional Counsel Offices geographic areas of responsibility were created to coincide with the boundaries of the five District Courts of Appeal.

Region Three (called RC3) serves the 11th and 16th Judicial Circuits comprising a population base of approximately 2.5 million people, and services approximately 43 courtrooms on a daily basis. The Agency began taking cases in October 2007 in the 11th Judicial Circuit and January 2008 in the 16th Judicial Circuit.

The Agency is essentially a high volume litigation law firm and all employees are expected to act as a litigation team and assist each other in providing quality representation to our clients.
