The difference between a public defender and private attorneys has to do with the difference in their caseloads. I know several public defenders who are very talented and who have outstanding experience in a courtroom.  Private attorneys can control who they work with. I do not work with every single person who wants to hire me. I make sure I only retain clients that are great fits for me. I only retain clients that share the same realistic goals I do on their case.  I retain clients that trust my professional expertise. Because of this, I have plenty of time to work on your case. I have plenty of time to return all your calls. I have plenty of time to investigate your case. I have plenty of time to talk to your husband or wife if they have a question.  Excellent customer service is what I promise and deliver to all of my clients.

Public defenders and court-appointed attorneys don’t have control over their caseloads. If the court appoints a client, they accept the appointment and handle the case. So, often you’ll have competent, experienced lawyers who simply have far too many files open at one time. Because they are flooded with files, they simply do not have the time necessary to deliver personal attention to their clients.

The Difference Between a Public Defender And Private Attorneys is something everyone should consider when they are facing criminal charges. Call Shawn now at 616-438-6719. He will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
