The Reconstituted CJA Panel in D.C.

by Jamison Koehler on May 29, 2018

 Every four years, D.C. Superior Court re-establishes the panel of criminal defense lawyers who are eligible to accept court appointments.  The first re-establishment occurred in 2010 and the second in 2014. Chief Judge Robert Morin just issued his most recent order re-establishing the panel for 2018-2021.  Unlike the 2014 process in which the Court reduced the number of eligible attorneys from 309 to 220, this year’s re-establishment maintains the current level at 213 (177 on the full panel and 36 on the “provisional” panel for new attorneys).  

Listed below are (1) lawyers on the full panel, (2) lawyers on the provisional panel, and (3) judges who participated on the selection panel.
