Court-Appointed Counsel


JAC’s Court-Appointed Section reviews and audits attorney fee billings submitted by private court-appointed counsel and related bills submitted by associated due process vendors, such as court reporters, investigators, and expert witnesses, for completeness and compliance with contractual and statutory requirements. Each year JAC Court Appointed processes approximately 56,000 such bills.

Below please find guides to submitting attorney and due process billings as well as sample motions and orders.
