Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

You can call the public defender's office in the county and ask if they have assigned someone to your grandson's case yet. If he asked for one, they will give you the name and the phone extension of the lawyer handling the case. You can talk to him or her and let the lawyer know of your grandson's mental health and comprehension issues.

If they tell you that no lawyer has been assigned, you can ask them the procedure for obtaining a public defender, since that varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. They have to be appointed by a judge, however, so most commonly a defendant lets his judge know on his appearance date that he is without the funds to hire a lawyer and needs a free lawyer to be appointed. The judge takes the matter from there.

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.
