I am being represented by a public defender. My trial is set for Monday. I have had almost no communication with him. I call and get voicemail and never receive an answer back. I have sent emails and tried talking to someone else in the pub. def. office. They always direct me back to him. Needless to say, I am not comfortable with what might happen come my court day. What can I do?

You can hire a lawyer to substitute in place of your public defender. And, you can be available to work with your public defender when he is ready to prepare for your trial.
Be aware that just because the case is set for Monday, does not mean it is going that day - and your PD may know that.
