Join the Roster


About the MAACS Roster:
MAACS administers and regulates the roster of private attorneys accepting felony appellate assignments for indigent criminal defendants in Michigan courts.

Regulation Section 2(2) classifies roster attorneys into two eligibility levels.

Level 1 attorneys represent defendants convicted by plea of offenses carrying a statutory maximum of less than life imprisonment.

Level 2 attorneys represent defendants convicted by trial, as well as defendants convicted by plea of offenses carrying a statutory maximum of life imprisonment.  Level 2 attorneys may choose to handle trial-appeals only.

The 2017 application period is now open. The deadline for submitting an application is August 31, 2017. All newly admitted MAACS roster attorneys are required to attend a new attorney orientation and training in October 2017.
