There is the defense attorney who you pay to help defend your case and there is the public attorney who is assigned to you in situations where you are unable to afford an attorney by yourself. However, the difference is that a public defender is over burdened with such cases and therefore might not be able to do complete justice to your case. Though there are laws that limit the number of cases that can be taken up by public attorneys the reality is that these attorneys go ahead and take up a lot of these cases and ultimately the results and not positive most of the times.
Our Dayton Defense team features former prosecutors. We focus heavily on criminal defense, particularly DUI defense for greater Dayton residents.
