IMPLEMENTATION OF INCREASES UNDER THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE ACT OF PANEL ATTORNEY HOURLY RATES AND CASE COMPENSATION MAXIMUMS

The new panel attorney hourly rates of $140 for non-capital representations and $188 for capital representations apply to services performed on or after March 23, 2018. Where the appointment of counsel occurred before March 23, 2018, the new hourly compensation rates apply to that portion of services provided on or after the effective date.

The rise in the non-capital hourly rate to $140 results in increases to the waivable case compensation maximum amounts for non-capital representations of $10,300, $7,300, $2,900, and $2,200, excluding expenses, to $10,900, $7,800, $3,100, and $2,300, respectively.
