Welcome

This website is designed to make the job of 18B attorneys somewhat easier. Here you will find links to other helpful websites that will enable you to access Supreme Court decisions, Court of Appeals decisions and a multitude of legal articles on various legal questions that confront the criminal or family court practitioner on a daily basis.

Vouchers General Information

There are two types of vouchers which must be completed for each case: the Nassau County “Claim Voucher” (Form 560) and the ACDP Voucher. ACDP has developed a voucher specific to each type of case you are handling: criminal, family, or appellate. Please be sure to download and complete the voucher that corresponds to the type of case for which you are seeking payment. Only one copy of both vouchers should be submitted to ACDP. Please do not submit more than one copy of either voucher. Original signatures are required on any and all vouchers submitted for payment, therefore, the vouchers must be either mailed or hand-delivered to ACDP. Please enter only the information described in the instructions below and the forms will calculate all hours, subtotals, and totals. If you are receiving an enhanced rate for a particular case, please remember to include a copy of the court order and initial all subtotals and totals on the relevant lines of the ACDP Vouchers.
