LET A FORMER PROSECUTOR FIGHT FOR YOU
If you are charged with a crime, you have certain rights guaranteed by the Constitution. One of the most important rights is the right to have an attorney represent you. If you cannot afford an attorney, the court may appoint one for you, but only in cases involving felonies or misdemeanors in which jail time is mandatory. Even under those circumstances, you may be required to pay money to the court to cover some of the cost of the attorney assigned to represent you. If the court appoints an attorney to represent you, you do not have the right to choose that attorney. It is important to be represented by an attorney who you feel is communicating effectively with you and is representing you to the best of their ability.
