It is a crime to practice law without a law license. You can hire a private attorney to represent him or you can ask the judge for a different public defender, although it’s unlikely that request would be granted. You don’t get much choice when you get a free lawyer.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals.
