LABC is extending all active Family Standard Contracts with a stop date between September 30, 2021, and March 30, 2022, to March 31, 2022, up to a maximum of four years from the contract start date.

To further assist counsel, LABC will automatically add 10 hours of General Preparation to each contract that is extended to March 31, 2022. Extended contracts with the additional 10 hours added will contain a new note under “Contract Instructions to Counsel” in the Lawyer Portal. Counsel can expect the changes to appear on their contracts shortly.
