I WOULD ALWAYS RETAIN A PRIVATE CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY IF IT CAN BE AFFORDED. A PRIVATE ATTORNEY WILL ,IF QUALIFIED,INVESTIGATE ALL POSSIBLE AVENUES OF DEFENSE AS WELL AS POSSIBLE PLEA BARGAINS. A PUBLIC DEFENDER WHEREAS THEY MAY BE COMPETENT WILL NOT SPEND AS MUCH TIME NOE INVESTIGATE AS WELL AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY BASES UPON CASELOAD.
