Public vs. Private Counsel- Your perception might be wrong

It’s a common myth that public defenders are somehow less qualified or skilled than a private attorney. That idea could not be further from the truth. Public Defenders are dedicated to their client’s and have invaluable experience with judges and courts. Each attorney is held to the same standards and education. Natalie worked for the Public Defender’s Office for many years and was equally effective as she is with FinegarLaw. The only difference can sometimes be the caseload, or amount of cases that the attorneys handle. That doesn’t mean that your public defender doesn’t have time to pay attention to your case and fight it. You deserve a lawyer that you trust- whether public or private.
