Court Appointed Attorneys
Chief Judge Anthony Rondolino has determined the current Sixth Judicial Circuit Registry for Court Appointed Attorneys is sufficient to handle the expected caseload for the fiscal year, July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018. Accordingly, the Sixth Judicial Circuit will NOT be soliciting this year for additional attorneys.
Sixth Judicial Circuit plans to renew all attorneys who currently serve the Registry and will submit this Registry to Justice Administrative Commission (JAC). Current Registry attorneys should receive an email from JAC in the next few months with steps which you must take to execute a contract with them for the FY 2017-2018.
As a reminder, the contract you enter to serve the Registry is with JAC – the Sixth Judicial Circuit will NOT be sending any contracts. Questions regarding contracts should be directed to JAC. Questions or changes to an attorney’s contact information or status on the registry should be directed to the office Court Counsel for the Sixth Judicial Circuit.
