Why should I hire a lawyer when I can have a public defender at no cost?

When you are facing legal trouble, you have the right to retain legal representation. However, not all lawyers are created equal. While hiring a private lawyer may cost money that a public defender does not, there are a number of benefits that enlisting the support of a private attorney brings. Often, public defenders are overworked and burdened with many other cases, causing them to have less time to focus on you and your specific needs. Typically, a private firm will have the resources necessary to help you with all aspects of your case and will be more readily able to help you than a busy public defense lawyer.
