I need an attorney who will be willing to review my son

Customer Question
I need an attorney...

I need an attorney who will be willing to review my son criminal case in FL and explain to me in simple terms what is going on. I can't afford to hire a private attorney so he has a public defender. I have a full power of attorney and have the legal right to make decisions for him, however I'm in CA he is in FL and I do not have no idea what is happening with this case since 2013. He in custody. I'm extremely confused and as a mother this is very disturbing. Please advise. Are there any attorneys I can hire to review his records and explain?

Lawyer's Assistant: Can you tell me what state this is in? And just to clarify, what paperwork has been filed?

FL

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I reviewed the legal documentation on court services, however it does not make sense to me, however it is a lot there.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Well I guess they continue to change public defenders and judges I truly do not know that is why I'm seeking legal advice.
