I've had three, two quit on me. Each was paid in full, and reasonable fees for another aren't a problem. The case is already 21 months old and trial s set in three weeks. The judge is insisting I try it pro per or bring an attorney.
None will take the case. I documented 60 I contacted last month, and another 100 before that. the local bar referral says I used there service 10 times. I've contacted nearly every private defense lawyer I can find--indigent defense contract list, lawyers who appeared before the judge recently, the state bars criminal law specialist list. Few respond, those who do refuse to take the case.
