Why should I hire a private criminal defense attorney?

While public defenders play a critical role in the Westchester criminal justice system—especially in regards to the services they provide defendants that would be capable of affording a private defense attorney—it is not uncommon for public defenders to be carrying several hundred cases at any given time. So, although public defenders will certainly have your best interests at heart, they most likely will not be capable of spending as much time with your case as a private criminal defense attorney would. This close attention to detail can be critical to cases that may be otherwise impossibly close.
