How is eligibility of appointed counsel determined?

  • Public Defender Services does not determine a client's eligibility to be represented. This determination rests solely within the discretion of the Circuit Court. The proceeding itself must be an authorized matter and the potential client must be deemed eligible.
  • The potential client completes a financial affidavit which is forwarded to the Court. The Circuit Court determines eligibility based on the following statutory guidelines:

Eligible Proceedings

      • W.Va. Code 29-21-2 defines "eligible proceedings" as "criminal charges which may result in incarceration; juvenile proceedings; proceedings to revoke parole or probation if the revocation may result in incarceration; contempt of court; child abuse and neglect; which may result in a termination of parental rights; mental hygiene commitment proceedings; extradition proceedings; proceedings which are ancillary to an eligible proceeding, including, but not limited to, proceedings to enhance sentences ....., forfeiture proceedings.....and appeals from or post-conviction challenges to the final judgment in an eligible proceeding."

Eligible Clients

      • W.Va. Code 29-21-16(e) sets forth the following factors which the Court must consider:
        1. Current income prospects, taking into account seasonal variations in income
        2. Liquid assets, assets which may provide collateral to obtain funds to employ private counsel and other assets which may be liquidated to provide funds to employ private counsel
        3. Fixed debts and obligations, including federal, state, and local taxes and medical expenses
        4. Child care, transportation, and other expenses necessary for employment
        5. Age or physical infirmity of resident family members
        6. Whether the person seeking publicly funded legal representation has made reasonable and diligent efforts to obtain private legal representation and the results of those efforts
        7. The cost of obtaining private legal representation with respect to the particular matter in which assistance is sought
        8. Whether the person seeking publicly funded legal representation has posted a cash bond for bail or has obtained release on bond for bail through the services of a professional bondsman for compensation and the amount and source of the money provided for such bond;
        9. The consequences for the individual if legal assistance is denied
      • For juvenile clients, the Court may disregard the parent or guardian's assets if the interests of the child are inimical to those of the parent. W.Va. Code 29-21-16(c).
      • Even with these factors to consider, however, the Circuit Court is ultimately the only arbiter of whether counsel is appointed.

Top of page

How long will it be before I receive payment?

  • Several factors determine how long it takes to process the vouchers, so it is not easy to give a specific time when payment will be received. The factors are:
    • Funds availability
    • End of Calendar Year -  IRS form 1099 statements stops processing the last two weeks of December
    • End of Fiscal Year - Closing out the Fiscal Year stops processing the last two weeks of June

Also the On-Line Voucher System (OVS) is a time saving tool for all users, appointed attorneys and WVPDS office staff.  If you are not part of the OVS system, please sign up today.  To find out more go to the OVS site.

How do I obtain and receive payment for services of an expert witness and investigator services?

  • PDS encourages appointed counsel to receive permission from the presiding Judge for approval of expenses for an expert witness, investigator, and other extraneous expenses prior to contracting for services.  The presiding Judge may set limits on what services will be approved. 

    If the expense is over $200, appointed counsel may complete a Direct Expense Voucher (this is completed for payment to be made directly to the service provider).  Reimbursement for mileage, copies, etc., is available to direct expense providers. Travel expenses are reimbursed using the Travel Management Guidelines. Click here to view the mileage rates. Please provide a complete itemized invoice (dates of service, hours worked, brief description of activity, hourly rate, mileage, etc.).

Top of page

What are the limitations on billing for paralegal services?

  • PDS will reimburse paralegal services at their actual hourly rate, but cannot exceed $20.00 per hour.   In order to be reimbursed for paralegal time, you must provide a fully itemized invoice on letterhead.  The invoice should detail the dates of service, time, and brief description of activity in the same form that attorney time and services are detailed.  The identity of the paralegal must be stated and a separate invoice must be prepared for each paralegal. The invoice must show the hourly wage of the paralegal. The paralegal, by statue, cannot bill for "in-court" time in any amount. Paralegal time is an expense on the appointed attorney's voucher and cannot be billed on a Direct Expense Voucher. See Paralegal Salary Conversion Chart and Paralegal Billing Guidelines.

    In the event that the fees and expenses are in excess of statutory limits, PDS advises that appointed counsel contact the presiding Judge for approval prior to service.

    PDS does not require separate orders to exceed the statutory limits and to approve the actual amount payable.  If an order sets forth the amount to be paid, PDS assumes the judge has found “good cause” to exceed the limits.

Who can sign up for the On-Line Voucher System (OVS)?

  • The appointed attorney and any person keying the attorney fee vouchers must sign up for the OVS system. Sign up information can be found on our web site. Signing up for the OVS system is easy. Just click on the On Line Voucher link and follow the three steps.

Top of page 

My payee is a firm. Do I sign up the firm's name or my own name for the On-Line Voucher System (OVS)?

  • The OVS system was created for the individual user not a firm. Each person using the OVS system in the firm, should have their own user name and password. The Access Request Form is filled out with the individual user's information. This means, the user will create the wv.gov account with their own user name and email address. The name and signature on the Access Request Form will be their own. If you leave the firm and go out on your own or work with another firm, your account stays with you.

Top of page 

If I submit my vouchers through the On-Line Voucher System (OVS), do I need to submit a paper voucher?

  • Yes, one certified copy of the paper voucher is still required. Once the voucher has been submitted to PDS and the voucher has been printed, follow the same procedure as before (send to judge or circuit clerk).

Top of page 

Why use the On-Line Voucher System (OVS)?  What are the benefits of using the OVS system?

  • There are several benefits to use the OVS system.  The OVS system:
    • is free and easy to use
    • performs calculations on fees, expenses, mileage, and in-house copies
    • allows management of multiple vouchers in progress
    • lets you keep time and expenses up-to-date
    • lets you know if itemization is needed on expense entries
    • prints the entire voucher along with the Order Approving Payment
    • browse through vouchers submitted to PDS
    • shows voucher status
    • is accessible on any device connected to the internet (smart phone, IPAD, computer, etc.)
  • The attorney just needs to sign the voucher and attach any itemization required. The OVS system simplifies the voucher completion and management process for attorneys. Since the OVS system calculates the voucher total and enforces common voucher rules, the potential for errors is greatly reduced and saves time for the user and PDS staff. The amount of time the OVS will save will increase over time as more and more people start using the system. If you are not using the OVS system, please sign up today.

Do I use the On-Line Voucher System (OVS) for my Direct Expense Vouchers?

  • No, the Direct Expense Voucher is not available on-line yet.

Top of page 

How do I key the criminal charge if I cannot find the criminal charge listed while keying my voucher into the OVS system?

  • Not all criminal charge are listed. Each Case Type brings up its own list of criminal charges. Call PDS and asked how to key the charge. The criminal charges have been grouped together based on how they are reported in the PDS Fiscal Year Annual Reports.

Top of page 

When entering the case numbers into the On-Line Voucher System (OVS), can I enter more than one case number on one line entry?

  • No, each case number must be entered separately. For more information, see the explanation of the "Count" field below.

Top of page

Please explain the "Count" field on the On-Line Voucher System (OVS)?

  • The "Count" field will always be 1, unless there are multiple counts, with the same Case Type, keyed under the same Criminal Charge, with the same Case number. Examples are listed below.

Example 1: Same case type, Multiple charges (but keyed the same), same case number

Client charged with 12 counts - All 12 counts are felonies, 6 counts of Forgery and 6 counts of Uttering, case number on all 12 counts is 12-F-45.
May or may not have the same code citation. The criminal charge of Forgery and criminal charge of Uttering are keyed under the criminal charge of "Forgery & Uttering."  Key this case information under one entry as follows:

  • Case type is "Felony"
  • Criminal charge is "Forgery & Uttering"
  • Key in the code citation (if more than one code citation just enter one)
  • Case Number is "12-F-45"
  • Count is "12"

Example 2: Different case type, multiple charges, same and different case numbers

Client is charged with 12 counts, 10 are felonies and 2 are misdemeanors.
Charges and case numbers are as follows: 3 felony counts of Grand Larceny with case numbers 12-F-50,51,52
2 misdemeanor counts - charges are Obstructing and Battery both are under the case number 12-M-45
7 felony counts of Meth with case numbers 12-F-53,54,55,56,57,58,59
Key each charge in its own entry as follows:

Case Type​ ​Criminal Charge ​Code Citation Case Number ​Count
​Felony ​Grand Larceny 61-3-13 ​12-F-50 ​1
​Felony ​Grand Larceny 61-3-13 ​12-F-51 ​1
​Felony ​Grand Larceny ​61-3-13 ​12-F-52 ​1
​Misdemeanor ​Obstruction Justice ​61-5-17 ​12-M-45 ​1
​Misdemeanor Assault  & Battery 61-2-9 ​12-M-45 ​1
​Felony ​Mfg/Poss or Dist of Meth 60A-4-411 ​12-F-53 ​1
Felony​ ​Mfg/Poss or Dist of Meth ​60A-4-411 ​12-F-54 ​1
​Felony ​Mfg/Poss or Dist of Meth ​60A-4-411 ​12-F-55 ​1
​Felony ​Mfg/Poss or Dist of Meth ​60A-4-411 ​12-F-56 ​1
​Felony ​Mfg/Poss or Dist of Meth ​60A-4-411 ​12-F-57 ​1
​Felony ​Mfg/Poss or Dist of Meth ​60A-4-411 ​12-F-58 ​1
Felony​ ​Mfg/Poss or Dist of Meth 60A-4-411 ​12-F-59 ​1
 

Remember, in order for the count to be more than one, three things must be the same: case type, criminal charge and case number. The code citations may be different.

I have submitted my voucher to PDS on line and while reviewing the printed voucher I found errors or left off entries. I have not submitted the voucher to the court for approval.   What should I do?

  • Once the voucher has been submitted to PDS on line, users cannot add to or make changes to the voucher. If errors or missing entries are found follow these steps:
    • Information on printed voucher is incorrect.
      1. Print the order and voucher.
      2. Cross out the incorrect information.  Please do not use white out because we need to see what we are changing.
      3. Write in correct information.
      4. Initial the change.
    • Missing fee and/or expense entries.
      1. Print the order and voucher.
      2. Write the missing entries on the voucher or attach a page with the missing entries with a note letting us know we need to add the entries.
      3. Recalculate totals.
      4. Cross out the incorrect totals throughout the voucher and write in the correct totals.  Please do not use white out because we need to see what we are changing.
      5. Have the appointed attorney initial the change to the total on the order approving payment. 

Top of page

Can I recover a voucher I deleted in the OVS system?

  • No, a deleted voucher cannot be recovered. The voucher will need to be entered again.

Top of page

Why do I have trouble searching for vouchers on the Voucher History link on the OVS system?

  • Mostly likely the reason is because PDS has reformatted the client name or case number. Try searching for the Attorney Name only instead of the case number or client name.

A Duplicate Search is performed on every voucher submitted to PDS. In order for the Duplicate Search to work correctly, it is sometimes necessary for PDS to reformat the case numbers and client names.

 Hyphens are added to the case number. Example 12F-72 or 12F72 are  reformatted to 12-F-72.

Letters at the end of the case number are deleted. Example: 12F-72A or 12F72A are reformatted to 12-F-72.

Leading zeros are removed from the case numbers. Example 12-F-0072 would be reformatted to 12-F-72.

Click on the question mark beside the Client Name in the OVS system. A box appears showing examples of how the client's name should be entered. If the user failed to enter the client's name as specified, PDS reformats the client name.
 
Adult client names are reformatted to last name, first name, middle name, and suffix. Example: John J. Smith, Sr. would be entered Smith John J Sr  -  No periods or commas are used.
 
Juvenile clients are entered with initials only. Examples:
John J. Smith keyed as JJS
John J. Smith, Jr. keyed as JJS JR
Jake, Jim, and John Wilson keyed as W Children or Wilson Children
No periods or commas are used. For additional examples, please sign into the OVS system and click on the question mark beside the Client Name.

Top of page  

What is the Primary Flag in the OVS system?

  • The Primary Flag marks the primary or worst offense. Examples: The client was charged with felonies and misdemeanors, the worst offense would be one of the felonies. If all the charges are felonies or misdemeanors, pick the worst offense to flag as primary. If the client only has one charge, be sure to flag it as primary. The OVS system will not allow the submission of the voucher to PDS if one case was not selected as the primary case.
Top of page
 

How can I check the status of the OVS vouchers submitted to PDS for payment?

  • How to check the status of the vouchers depends on how the voucher was submitted to PDS.

To view the status of the vouchers submitted using the OVS system, sign into the OVS system and  click on Voucher History. Enter the search criteria for the voucher needed.  If the search criteria is "Attorney Name" only, all vouchers submitted to PDS will appear. The voucher's  status is found under the "Status" heading. The three status categories with an explanation are:

  • Submitted to PDS. The voucher has been submitted electronically by the user to PDS for review. PDS is waiting for the paper voucher.
  • In Progress. The paper voucher has been received by PDS.  PDS has reviewed the voucher and has submitted the electronic voucher to our database, known as ACCTS (Appointed Counsel Claims Tracking System).
  • Sent to Auditor. The voucher has been submitted to the State Auditor. The invoice can be viewed on VISTA.

For the status of the vouchers submitted that were not sent through the OVS system, please check on VISTA.  The vouchers will not appear on VISTA until after they are submitted to the State Auditor.

Where do I send the completed vouchers so I can get reimbursed for my services?

  • In order for PDS to pay the voucher, the Order Approving Payment must have the judge's signature, raised seal, and an entered date. The vouchers are submitted to the Circuit Clerk's/Court Administrator's office. Each county has their own procedure as to how the vouchers are processed. PDS suggests contacting  the Circuit Clerk's office to learn the procedure. 

Once the voucher has been processed by the Circuit Clerk/Court Administrator's office, PDS must have one certified copy in order to process the voucher for payment. PDS' mailing address is:
