Update on the New FJD Court-Appointed Conflict Counsel Procedures and Fees

CLE - New FJD Court-Appointed Counsel Procedures & Fees

Hosted by the Criminal Justice Section

On June 26, 2017, the First Judicial District's Administrative Governing Board set forth an order for increases in court-appointed counsel fees, as well as updates in procedures relating to counsel fees. These changes will apply to all appointments received after July 1, 2017. The new system marks a significant development toward the fight for justice for Philadelphia's indigent clients.

This timely CLE program will provide an overview of the new order and guidance to court-appointed counsel and those who wish to become court appointed counsel regarding the policy and procedure regarding:

  • court appointments
  • the fee schedule and structure
  • fee petitions and payment vouchers
  • basic instruction regarding how to become court-appointed counsel

Join your colleagues in the Criminal Justice Section for this program that provides critical updates for practitioners who are court-appointed counsel and those who wish to become court appointed counsel.
