Court-Appointed Counsel / Indigent for Costs (IFC)


Welcome

JAC’s Court-Appointed Section inputs, reviews and audits attorney fee billings sent by private court-appointed counsel and related bills sent 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.

When a criminal defendant retains private counsel, yet is determined indigent by the Court for purposes of costs associated with the defense, JAC reviews and audits bills sent by due process vendors, such as court reporters, investigators, and expert witnesses, for payment.
