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.
