Your membership is effective upon approval of your application and receipt of annual membership dues. If you have never been a member before, we need to provide the name of a current FBCCDAA member that can verify you are a practicing criminal defense lawyer when you complete the Online Application as described below.
Note: To join FBCCDAA you must be a member in good standing of the State Bar of Texas engaged in the defense of criminal cases (except law students or affiliate applicants). New applicants MUST be endorsed by a current FBCCDAA member. Members of the judiciary (except honorary members) and those regularly employed in a prosecutorial office are not eligible.
Annual Dues begin on February 1 of each year and are as follows:
$37 for those in practice less than 5 years.
$52 for those in practice 5 years or more.
We are currently accepting payment for 2012 dues only by credit card or debit card through Paypal. You do not have to have a Paypal account to pay with a credit or debit card through Paypal. Manual Payments can be made only after completing the online application process according to the instructions at the end of the application process. Credit card payments are usually processed much faster. Your membership is subject to approval as new applicants MUST be endorsed by a current FBCCDAA member by typing the name of a current FBCCDAA member when prompted during the application process.
