Welcome to JustAnswer and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. Please remember that there might be a delay between your follow up questions and my answers because I may be helping other clients or taking a break.
I am sorry for your situation. There are different schools of though about this, and I will point out the pros and cons of both. It is - of course - your decision in the end.
-despite the rumors, these attorneys are usually highly skilled and often better than your average attorney due to experience.
-they are just as highly motivated.
-however, they are often harder to reach and communicate with due to their case load. This tends to be the biggest complaint
-you pay, but the attorney will always communicate with you
-tend to better explain the situation
-has a little more time for you
-you know that you are his ONLY focus since private attorneys have less cases (typically) than public defenders.
In the end, it is your choice. However, you won't be appointed a public defender unless you are indicted, and this is a disadvantage. Because of much of evidence is gathered at interviews, I RECOMMEND hiring an attorney if they call you in to talk, and under no circumstance to talk to them alone. See here:

While the legal system tries to be inclusive of every possibility, sometimes, people are morally wronged but have limited legal avenues to seek relief
. If so, please understand that this is not the expert’s fault (in other words, I prefer to tell you the truth rather than tell you what you want
to hear, so if the news is not good, please do not shoot the messenger).
