Public defenders are a crucial component of the legal system. They are given, to anyone, and everyone, accused of a crime. The only problem is, public defenders don’t necessarily provide the best defense for clients. Public defenders work for the state, and as a result – aren’t necessarily looking out for your best interest. Because the government pays them – there’s immense questions about where their loyalty lies. Many times, public defenders will pay little to no attention to your Bronx criminal case, because they have too much work on their hands. In addition, public defenders regularly work in a specific court, and they become the ally of the court officials and prosecutors. As a result, the public defender will sometimes choose to maintain his relationship, and not fight hard on your behalf. We highly recommend you hire a private criminal attorney if you can afford to.
