Fiance and I were accused of stealing a $7,000 doll, that was said to be on loan, but was on their floor to sell. They have cameras we're not working that day. How can I write an email to get a good attorney to look at our case? We plan to counter Sue, due to slandering our name on media. And corrupt cops involved. But it's a small town. How can we get help? What can we do or say to get a lawyers help? Best way to get good legal help. Thanks for any information. We feel set up by not only the antique store, but the police, and have been blasted on local media, which has effected all areas in our lives. But the police seem to be working with them. We're good people and want to do what's right to protect ourselves, but financially can't afford to hire a lawyer. And the public defends they assigned us to, are friends with the owner. And we need a fair trial.
Check into having a public defender appointed
This answer is not legal advice, and does not create an attorney - client relationship. This answer is for educational purposes only.
If you really think that your public defender is biased bring this to his or her attention and ask that they recuse themselves. If they refuse, bring it to the attention of the judge. If the judge refuses to ask them to recuse, you're options for getting a different public defender dim significantly. At that point, I would shop around for an affordable attorney with a good reputation, who would be willing to work on your case.
