Calling ALL Criminal Defense Attorneys: Take our Survey by July 3rd
In 2016, the Michigan Indigent Defense Commission gathered basic information from attorneys on their experiences in indigent defense. The responses that we received documented the prevalence of inadequate compensation in indigent defense systems across the state. As a follow up, we are seeking more in-depth information about attorney compensation and costs.
ALL CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEYS are asked to take approximately 10 minutes to provide this valuable information to the MIDC. Your experiences will directly inform the development of our proposed Standard 8, Economic Disincentives or Incentives. We are interested in your perspective even if you do not currently take or never have taken court-appointed cases.
All responses are ANONYMOUS. The survey can be completed below, or accessed here.
