Public defender's office
Are you not going to tell me anything else?
Hi Angela,Thank you for your response.Every public defender in the public defender's office has a supervisor. Consider calling the public defender's office and speaking with the supervisor. You may tell the supervisor that your public defender is not providing you with adequate representation. Explain that the PD is not presenting the pleas as you instructed nor providing you with a copy of the discovery so that you can make an informed decisionIf the supervisor Is not helpful, you can consider writing a letter to the judge stating that your PD is violating your right to adequate representation by not informing you about the discovery nor presenting pleas.I would be glad to respond to any related follow-up questions that you may have.
