What Is The Difference Between Private Attorneys And Public Defenders?

The biggest difference between having a private attorney and being assigned a public defender centers on time; a private attorney will have the time to focus on their client’s case, while the public defender simply won’t. Public defenders usually have a huge caseload, and they simply can’t spend the time necessary to do a thorough analysis of the evidence and deal with various issues, and they can’t take the time to get to know their clients very well, which means it will be difficult to get the best outcome for your case.

That doesn’t mean there aren’t some good public defenders and bad private attorneys, but the odds are in your favor if you hire a private attorney. A public defender’s job is very difficult, and they can’t focus their attention on you the way a private attorney can.
