3 Reasons You Should Choose an Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer Over a Public Defender

Facing criminal charges can quickly leave you overwhelmed and unsure of the steps to take next. There’s a lot to consider and all of it needs to be done quickly. The United States does not let anyone go through their criminal proceedings alone or without representation, and in the midst of everything, you have probably been offered a consultation with a public defender. Public defenders are lawyers who have passed the Florida bar and are highly qualified and hardworking individuals, but it is likely still in your best interest to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney as well.

When you are looking for someone to fight for your rights and give you a chance for a happy and healthy future, Fighter Law has your back. Our board-certified team of Florida-based attorneys has successfully helped our clients get the best results possible for their criminal cases for many years now, and we want to do the same for you. 

3 Reasons to Partner with a Dedicated Experience Criminal Defense Attorney

A good lawyer can make all the difference in your criminal case’s outcome. Three main reasons it’s worth shopping around to find a firm to trust your case with include the following: 

Access to More Resources

Simply put, a large and long-operating firm like Fighter Law is going to have access to more resources than a public defender. More resources means more options and more opportunities for a lesser sentence and better outcomes. Fighter Law’s experienced criminal defense attorneys have connections with field experts, private investigators, and other important figures, meaning they will likely be able to obtain access to time-sensitive evidence and testimonies that a public defender would not. Examples of time-sensitive materials include: 

  • Traffic camera footage
  • Police reports
  • Key witness testimony

These hard-to-get pieces of evidence can make a world of difference when it comes to your defense. 

Personalized Service

Public defenders are swamped and work in a team of one, meaning they only have the time allotted with you and nothing more. Hiring a private attorney normally means you have access to the whole firm, so even if your attorney isn’t available, you can reach out to someone for guidance or questions. Fighter Law believes in a people-first approach and ensures every client is properly looked after and constantly in the loop, from the very beginning consultation to the end outcome. 

Better Outcome

With better resources and more time, you are likely to end up with a better outcome partnering with a private criminal defense attorney over a public defender. Fighter Law will work to get your charges severely lessened or, in some cases, even dismissed. Having a private attorney on your side means someone willing to fight for you, whether that means negotiating with the state attorney or taking your case to court.

Depending on the severity of your charges, having a criminal defense record can make regular life more difficult.

Fighter Law is honored to have served the Central Florida region since 1999, and we have fought in over 250 state and federal jury trials to verdict.
