Private Criminal Defense Lawyer Or Public Defender?
Nowadays, everyone wants to save money, so it’s tempting to go with a court-appointed public defender to cut costs. However, think about what’s on the line before jumping to accept a court-appointed attorney. Criminal charges are serious and can have a dramatic impact on your entire life. You could face hard time or other consequences that will follow you forever and impact your future employment options.
Public defenders balance large caseloads, so they have extraordinarily little time to dedicate individual attention and research to one case. They will often push for a plea deal which might not ultimately be in your best interests. Instead, you want someone who will give your case the full and focused attention it deserves — someone who will fight aggressively to achieve the best possible outcome. At Bland & Birdwhistell, PLLC, that’s exactly the kind of lawyer you will find.
