Hiring a Criminal Defense Attorney Versus a Public Defender

If you have been arrested for a crime in Wayne or Oakland County, you'll need to decide whether to hire a private criminal defense lawyer or a public defender to defend your case.

Although a public defender is a free service offered by the government, you should strongly consider the benefits of hiring a private criminal defense attorney at the Law Offices of Freedman & Freedman. Public defenders are often burdened with more work than they can feasibly handle. The county will pile case upon case until a public defender is swimming in cases to defend. For this reason, public defenders often do not have the same amount time to devote to a case the same way private criminal lawyers do. This means less attention to detail, and ultimately less time the public defender has to spend finding ways to get your charges reduced or dismissed.

At Freedman & Freedman, we control the amount of criminal cases we accept, and never take on more work than we can handle. We prefer to work this way, so that we can devote 100% of our time, energy, and resources to providing our clients with best defense possible. Not only do we work hard in collecting evidence and testimony, but we also take the time to thoroughly review police reports to determine whether or not our client's constitutional rights were violated. Furthermore, before heading to trial we always spend a great deal of time preparing our arguments and finding the strategies we feel would be most effective in defending our clients. In addition, we make ourselves available at all times to answer our clients' questions, address their concerns, and provide them with much needed advice and guidance.
