Matthew Kaplan Appointed to CJA Appeals Panel

I am pleased that I have been appointed by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals to its Criminal Justice Act (CJA) panel.  As an appellate CJA attorney I will represent indigent individuals who have been criminally convicted in federal courts.

The appointment came after a lengthy and apparently thorough selection process by the court.

The Richmond-based Fourth Circuit is responsible for federal cases in Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.  The Courts of Appeals are the intermediate federal appellate courts, above the trial-level district courts and below the United States Supreme Court.

I am also a member of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals’ CJA panel.
