INTRODUCTIONThe San Francisco Superior Court is charged with the responsibility of ensuring thatcriminal defendants and juveniles facing prosecution receive quality representationwhenever the Office of the Public Defender declares a conflict of interest or is otherwiseunavailable. Since the early 1970s, the Court has collaborated closely with the BarAssociation of San Francisco (BASF) to carry out this duty. Through the ConflictsProgram, attorneys are appointed by the Court from panels administered by BASF’sLawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS). The members of these panels havedemonstrated experience ranging from misdemeanor to special circumstances cases, andare carefully screened by BASF and the Superior Court.Qualified attorneys are both efficient and knowledgeable, and therefore cost-effective forthe City. Each case presents unique factual and legal issues, and clients are best servedby attorneys who are compensated for reasonable services rendered. Panel attorneys arepaid hourly, albeit at rates substantially less than in privately retained cases. The quidpro quo essential for attorneys to accept court-appointed rates is the opportunity to keepskills dynamic and to litigate issues at the forefront of the legal and forensic frontier. Theinvolvement of a broad spectrum of private counsel, in turn, energizes and enhances theoverall quality of practice in San Francisco. The Court is committed to maintaining thesediverse panels of highly qualified and committed attorneys working in this challengingarea of law.Since 2003, BASF’s Indigent Defense Administration (IDA) has provided comprehensiveoversight to the administration and billing associated with this program. In addition tomaking available highly qualified counsel to be present each day in court, IDA alsoreviews and processes all bills from attorneys, investigators and experts. In so doing,IDA provides sound monitoring of appointed counsel, investigative and other ancillarycosts, assisting the Court in ensuring that bills are in compliance with the billing policiesand procedures set out in this manual.The cooperation of Court-appointed attorneys is essential to the continued efficientadministration of this important program. These billing guidelines may changeperiodically and it is the responsibility of the attorney to obtain the latest version fromBASF, by calling (415) 782-9000 x8748, or by visiting the BASF website athttp://www.sfbar.org.Questions or suggestions regarding this manual should be addressed to the IndigentDefense Administration, at the number listed above.i
