Panel Attorney Hourly Rate And Case Compensation Maximums Increase Effective 1/1/20

The judiciary’s Defender Services account received funding to increase the Criminal Justice Act (CJA) panel attorney hourly rates from $148 to $152 for non-capital work and from $190 to $195 for capital work performed on or after January 1, 2020. Where the appointment of counsel occurred before January 1, 2020, the new hourly compensation rates apply to that portion of services provided on or after the effective date.
