I have a felony case that I was arraigned for last month (Fullerton, CA). I was assigned a public defender whom I've been calling for the past 3 weeks. She never answers her phone, I always leave a message. Pretrial Is only a week away and I have not even touched base with my public defender. I get the feeling that I will not talk to her until I actually see her at pretrial. I don't feel like I stand a chance at court because I don't even get to talk to my attorney before court..
Where does the law stand in regard to adequate counsel?
What is the best solution (Besides hiring a private attorney)?
