Description

The Baton Rouge Capital Conflict Office (BRCCO) is a non-profit law firm that provides trial-level defense services to indigents charged of capital offenses in Louisiana state courts. The mission of the BRCCO is to provide quality capital representation to indigents in state court. The office complies with the ABA standards of capital representation to investigate the case, obtain expert assistance, evaluate the case, raise all claims that should be litigated and provide the best defense presentation to a jury. BRCCO accepts appointments in cases with a conflict of interest on the part of the local public defender. That usually involves multiple defendant cases, but also covers other situations from the prior representation of a witness to a prior representation of the victim. The office also takes cases in districts where there are no available attorneys certified to represent capital defendants. BRCCO has represented clients in all corners of the state from Oak Grove to Shreveport to Ville Platte to Edgard to New Orleans. BRCCO is solely funded by the Louisiana Public Defender Board.
