Andrew M. Skier, founder and lead trial counsel of Skier & Associates, has been invited by Committee Chair, Hon. Judge Kathleen Cardone, U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, to testify before her Ad Hoc Committee to Review the Criminal Justice Act.
The purpose of this committee is to evaluate the effectiveness of current policies and governance structures and their impact on the appointment and compensation of counsel, quality of legal representation, program administration, and adequacy of funding.
This study, national in scope, will take three years to complete and hopefully will result in positive changes to the way the indigent are represented before Federal District courts nationwide.
At Skier & Associates, we are proud and honored to have a chance to speak on behalf of all CJA Panel lawyers in the Middle District of Alabama.
