A:  Locally licensed lawyer

For questions involving state laws, lawyers who are licensed in the same state as the asker are often able to provide more relevant answers than out-of-state lawyers.

For questions involving federal laws (e.g., immigration or patents), this distinction is unimportant.

Answered If you want results then hire a skilled and experienced criminal defense lawyer.

I am not trying to be insensitive or rude, but (as you should have discerned by now) no one else in the system – not the Judge, certainly not the prosecutor and to some degree not even his PD – is going to do anything to speed up your son’s case, much less effort at moving Heaven and Earth in his interests.

I am not knocking his PD. In fact, when it comes to the subject of PD’s I am adamant that although they generally cannot afford to offer up the time and personalized attention that a private lawyer brings to the table (albeit at a price), PD’s are almost all excellent attorneys, generally being extremely well-versed in both the law and their courtrooms.

Contrary to popular belief, it is not easy to either get hired as, or to remain employed as, a PD. It takes brains, ethics, effort and commitment. It is an often times thankless job and attorney’s who are not committed to it simply do not last. For those who do, however, their client’s benefit not only from the day-to-day knowledge of their individual courtrooms (including but not limited to knowing the tendencies of their Judge, their prosecutors and the other instrumental court personnel) but also from the vast resources that the PD brings to the table (investigators, experts, etcetera) without further expense to the client.

Still, if you want speed (no lawyer can guarantee results, only quality of effort) then you must find a way to go private.

I hope that I have been helpful in answering your question.
