If at all possible you need to hire a private attorney. There are several good public defenders however most are overworked and underpaid.
I will be happy to speak with you at no cost with a FREE phone consultation if you have a San Diego or California matter. Please call my office at 619-238-1905 or visit my website at www.lawofficeofwilliamdaley.com
As attorney Keller noted, if you have a fundamental disagreement with your public defender that is impairing your ability to prepare a defense, then it may be prudent to ask the Court to appoint counsel. Do not, disclose details in open court or online.
