Criminal Defense Basics

People who are accused of, or charged with crimes need to lodge an effective defense to protect their rights. In some cases, there is an option to obtain defense services from a public defender. When possible, it is always better to retain a private Boston Criminal Defense Attorney to get the best possible results from that representation.

There are important differences between the two types of defense counsel.

  • Private Attorney - A private attorney will work closely with you on all aspect of your case. If it is necessary to take over your case from another lawyer or the public defender, this legal professional will handle it in the normal fashion, giving you personalized attention and formulating a unique strategy for your case. They often will offer a free consultation, but they also do charge for most legal services. You can choose your own private attorney, and make that selection based on full disclosure of their experience in criminal defense. Your own private attorney may have less chance of problems like conflict of interest than a public defender might. With extensive local experience, they also will know many officials and others in the local court system.
  • Public Defender - If you are facing incarceration due to a criminal conviction, the Sixth Amendment guarantees your right to have legal counsel. If your finances are such that you cannot afford a private attorney, the court will appoint legal counsel to represent you at trial. This attorney may be from the local public defender’s office, or perhaps a local private attorney selected from a pre-approved panel of attorneys who are on duty for court service that day. These lawyers are all experienced with criminal defense. If extra funds are required for presenting evidence, perhaps from private investigators or expert witnesses, they can petition the court to fund those expenses. There may be multiple attorneys at the public defender’s office that work on different phases of your case. Those with the most experience sometimes only handle the most serious cases. You can request a change of public defender for good reason, or hire your own private attorney if you acquire funds during the duration of the case.
