When your freedom is on the line, you want the most experienced professional managing your criminal case. The most important decision you will make in your own criminal defense is knowing who to hire.
A study on private attorneys vs public defenders by Judge Morris B. Hoffman, a Colorado trial judge, concluded that defendants who went with a public defender, were not only more likely to go to jail but are also more likely to serve a longer sentence. Defendants that hired a private attorney received on average a three year shorter sentence.
* the State will expect you to pay for an attorney, if you can afford one.
Public defenders can be great attorneys. However, to no fault of their own, their biggest downfall is their caseload. It is not uncommon for a public defender to see 25-50 cases per day.
Your freedom is priceless and by no means should you gamble with it. Retaining the right counsel can make all the difference. If you are facing serious incarceration, fines or are falsely accused, a private attorney would be your best choice. While upfront costs may initially deter your decision in hiring a private attorney, the benefits should outweigh this. No one enjoys spending time being locked up.
