HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.Unfortunately, public defenders are the answer to legal representation for those who cannot afford a private attorney. If you are able to afford a private attorney, I suggest you will want to consider the CA Bar Association for a legal referral. What is your son charged with? What is the June 1 hearing for? Why do you feel the PD is not doing a good job on your son's case?

Sam,
The PD has not had a one on one conversation with him, only in the court room and that does not
give him time to respond before he is transported back to jail.

HelloI know. It is a sad situation. They are swamped. Is this your son's first time arrested and charged? Is the PD talking about a plea? Do you know what that might be?
