My son is in serious trouble with DWI's. We are not bailing him out but we do want him to have a lawyer, not a public defender.

Saint Louis, MO |

He is in Louisianna and we are in MO. How can be sure we are getting a reputable attorney.

  1. A public defender is a lawyer who has a great deal of experience with the court and a great deal of experience with this kind of case. The advantage of hiring a private lawyer is more personalized service. If I were in your place and he qualified for a public defender I'd use the public defender.
