Capital Collateral Attorney Registry

The Justice Administrative Commission (JAC) will continue to maintain the registry of private attorneys who have indicated their eligibility to be appointed to represent indigent defendants in capital collateral cases. For the purpose of private court appointment, two CCRCs must have an actual conflict of interest, as required by the new law. Moreover, the new law transferred the contracting and payment of private court-appointed Capital Collateral Registry Attorneys from the Department of Financial Services to the JAC effective July 1, 2013.
