Any criminal defense attorneys in WV who accept appointments, understands the joy (*tongue in cheek*) of completing the Defense Counsel Voucher Forms provided by the West Virginia Public Defender Service. Unfortunately, the forms provided on their website are not very useful, in the sense of not being terribly user friendly. If you have fought through the frustration of filling out the forms, and have not found the time or resources to modify their forms for your own law firm’s use, then you may find our newest resource that we posted to our website useful. Please check our our easy to use, fillable West Virginia Criminal Defense Counsel Voucher Form.
We took the “Order Approving Payment of Appointed Counsel Fees & Expenses” form and converted it to a fillable PDF form, which allows you to easily tab through all of the form fields necessary to complete the form. Next, we took the portion of the Voucher form for your Itemized Statement of Legal Services, and added more functionality to that portion.
