Public defenders sometimes get an undeserved “bad rap” because people assume that since they work for “free,” they couldn’t be any good. In fact, most public defenders are talented and capable attorneys who are extremely dedicated to their cause. However, almost every single public defender would agree that because of their heavy caseload, they simply cannot devote the amount of time and attention to each individual case that they would like. Each public defender routinely handles hundreds of cases at once, which means that even if they worked 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, they simply could not devote the time and and attention that each case deserves. Oftentimes they cannot even remember all of their clients’ names. Another drawback is that public defenders work in “shifts,” meaning that if you had 4 court appearances for your case, you might meet a different attorney for each appearance.

At Lee Law Firm, we purposely keep our caseload small, which means that we have more time to meet with the client, track down witnesses, and conduct in depth legal research.
