About SDAP
SDAP is a law firm that does criminal and juvenile appeals for indigent clients in the San Jose area. We are not the court of appeal.

Questions about eClaims?
eClaims are processed by the CAP-LA computer system. If you have questions about eClaims, you should contact George Vergara or Jay Kohorn at CAP-LA at 213-243-0300. SDAP can only unsubmit a claim or explain which tasks must be placed on which line items.

Direct Deposit For Panel Attorneys
Some panel attorneys requesting Direct Deposit have been using the old form. When the correct form is sent with the request, setting up Direct Deposit requires a minimum of 30 days. When the request comes on an old form, it causes delays of about 30 additional days to correct the matter. Correction entails notifying the attorney and waiting for the correct form to be re-sent because it must contain an original signature.
