What about a public defender?
A public defender is a state-appointed attorney that comes to your aid if you are charged with a crime and cannot afford to hire an attorney. Often, public defenders get a bad name. However, just like anything else, there are good public defenders and bad public defenders. In our opinion, there are also good private lawyers and bad private lawyers. If you are accused of a crime and want the best attorney or team of attorneys to represent you, then you should look into the credentials of the lawyer or law firm. How many cases do they fight to trial? How long have they been practicing? Do they work as a team? These are a few of the questions that you should be finding the answers to. Hiring the right lawyer to take care of your case is of monumental importance. Few lawyers in the state of Indiana have the experience, skill, and knowledge to match up to our team of lawyers, whether they are public defenders or private lawyers.
