Commissioners approved contracts with 10 attorneys Thursday as part of a new system that will supplement the public defender's office.

The 12-month contracts will begin March 1. Each attorney will be compensated $20,000 plus reimbursement of authorized expenses for handling up to 38 cases.

The attorneys will act as conflict counsel for indigent defendants when a conflict of interest would prevent lawyers in the public defender's office from representing them.

The attorneys contracted Thursday are Tim Andrews, Tim Dawson, Valerie Veltri, Brian Aston, James Fox, James Robinson, Michael DeMatt, David Regoli, Amy Keim and Patricia Elliot.
