Nevada Juvenile Justice
Sec. § 62D.100
Right to representation by attorney; appointment of attorney under certain circumstances; compensation.


A parent or guardian of a child who is alleged to be delinquent or in need of supervision may be represented by an attorney at all stages of the proceedings. The juvenile court may not appoint an attorney for a parent or guardian, unless the juvenile court:


Finds that such an appointment is required in the interests of justice; and


Specifies in the record the reasons for the appointment.


Each attorney, other than a public defender, who is appointed pursuant to subsection 1 is entitled to the same compensation and expenses from the county as is provided in NRS 7.125 and 7.135 for attorneys appointed to represent persons charged with criminal offenses.
