Assigned Counsel Rate

NACDL supports the passage of legislation to increase the assigned counsel rate in New York.

During the 2021-2022 session, the New York State Legislature considered S.3527 / A.6013, legislation to increase the hourly compensation rate for assigned counsel from $75 to $150 and to require the Division of Criminal Justice Services to review the hourly compensation rate on an annual basis. In March 2022, NACDL issued a legislative action alert in support of the legislation as part of NACDL's 2022 Public Defense Day advocacy.
