3 Benefits of Having a Private Criminal Defense Attorney Instead of a Public Defender, Chardon, Ohio

When you're facing criminal charges, your future could depend on the quality of your legal representation. Courts may provide a public defender at a lower up-front cost than what’s required to hire most criminal defense attorneys, but it can be more expensive in the long run. Hiring a private criminal defense attorney like those at Ibold & O'Brien a law firm serving Geauga and Ashtabula counties in northeast Ohio, can provide many advantages.

3 Benefits Of Hiring a Private Criminal Defense Attorney

Individualized Attention

The higher fees collected by your criminal defense attorney allow them to accept a limited number of cases and give each client the attention their case deserves. The workload of public defenders often is so excessive, many can provide only a bare minimum of service.

Focused Experience

In general, public defenders handle an array of cases, from assault to DUI and everything in between. Private criminal defense attorneys usually focus on one or two practice areas, giving them insight to formulate the most effective legal strategy possible.

Frequent Updates

Chardon-OH-criminal-defenseJuggling dozens of cases at once makes maintaining lines of communication difficult, so public defenders can be hard to contact. Criminal defense attorneys have time to answer questions and provide updates on your case, as well as the kind of support staff most public defenders can’t access.

When the outcome of your case could alter your life forever, turn to a criminal defense attorney with an established track record of success.
