Legal Question

Asked on: 9/17/13, 6:03 pm

My wife is being charged with welfare fraud. We retained an attorney for $3500 which does not include a trial. She had an arraignment, she pled not guilty. She had preliminary hearing, and a pre trial. We notified the attorney that we could not afford to have him represent us for the trial. She was appointed a public defender and given a court date for arraignment again. Why would we have to start over?
