Why You Want a Private Attorney Rather than a Public Defender

Many public defenders are excellent and do a commendable job with the time and resources they have available. The problem is that they typically do not have the resources to provide you with the best possible defense.

Like most government agencies, budget cuts mean lower headcount. Coupled with an increasing caseload, this means many public defenders simply do not have the time to perform a proper investigation and formulate the best strategy for trial. A private criminal defense attorney can take the time needed to properly investigate your criminal charges, including interviewing witnesses and having the proper experts and professionals examine the evidence to help with your defense.

If you have been charged with murder or manslaughter, you should retain experienced counsel immediately to ensure that your constitutional rights are protected and to mount a meaningful defense.

Private defense attorneys are more expensive than public defenders, but you get what you pay for, and when your freedom and future are on the line, you want the best possible representation available.
