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.
Theft - stealing I phones to sell, driving no permit, driving a stolen vehicle
Lawyer: Sam, Attorney at Law replied 3 years ago
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?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
