Good evening. Yes, there is. A pro bono attorney is one who is willing to take a case for free or at a reduced rate. All attorney are encouraged to take cases pro bono, so if a defendant does not want to ask to be appointed the public defender and can not afford private counsel, then they should contact criminal defense attorneys in their county and explain their hardship and the need for help and see if the attorney will volunteer their services.
