Court Appointed Attorneys in ADA Cases
Pierce County Superior Court is seeking to add to the list of qualified local attorneys who are willing to accept appointment by the court to represent civil litigants with eligible disabilities under GR-33. Appointments under GR-33 are nearly always for disabled individuals who are eligible due to severe psychological or neurological impairments and have subsequently been found after an evaluation and review of healthcare records to qualify for court appointed counsel as an ADA accommodation. The court appointment rate is currently set by Superior Court at $85.00 per hour.
Any attorney who is interested in being placed on the ADA Appointment List, should provide the below listed information to Bruce S. Moran, Deputy Court Administrator, at Pierce County Superior Court, 930 Tacoma Avenue South, Room 334, Tacoma, WA. 98402. If you have questions please contact Mr. Moran at (253) 798-4193.
There are no volunteer opportunities with Superior Court at this time.
