Is Hiring An Attorney Really Worth It? Can't I Get One Appointed?

It seems as if everyone knows the part of the Miranda Warning that says that a lawyer will be appointed to you if you cannot afford to hire one. While it may be true for people who truly have no financial means to hire their own, it is not necessarily a good idea, and here is why.

  • Work go get you the best agreement: A court-appointed lawyer is there to protect your rights. While they are sworn to provide vigorous representation, that does not necessarily mean they have the skill or experience to fight aggressively to get your charges dismissed or reduced to avoid the harshest sentence.
  • Focuses on the best possible outcome: One of your lawyer's main goals will be to keep you on an even keel regarding what is really possible for an outcome. If you want to fight aggressively to avoid a conviction, your hired attorney will be there for you. A public defender may not have the necessary resources or experience to build the strongest case possible. Hiring your own criminal defense lawyer puts the same attorney on your side of the courtroom at every step.
  • Continue to help you with post-conviction relief: A public defender's job is to protect your rights throughout your case. They may not have the skill or expertise to help you through your appeal, if you choose to appeal your conviction.
  • Protects you from yourself: You have probably heard it said that a person who represents himself in court has a fool for a client. Nowhere is that more true than in the criminal justice system. When you hire an experienced lawyer, you will have a confidante who will explain the law to you and help you see that decisions that seem right at the time may have serious implications that you may not foresee.

What About Representing Myself To Save Money

Many people think they can learn everything they need to know about handling their own case by reading books. While there have been a handful of successful self-defended cases in court history, the truth is that law books and novels don't touch on the nuances and strategies the prosecutor will likely bring to your case. An attorney with the right experience is your best option for protecting your rights.
