While most public defenders in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania have the right heart and the ability to handle complex criminal matters, it’s the resources that are sometimes lacking. This is the difference between having a public defender that’s really trying hard to help with you with lacks the ability to do so because of resources and having your own private attorney who has the resources and the know-how needed to protect you.
Private lawyers, especially experienced Bucks County criminal defense attorneys, have the ability to focus solely on your case for a period of time. Unlike public defenders who often have multiple cases on their plate at all times, private defense attorneys will be able to dedicate their focus to your particular case. If the case can be resolved in an amicable fashion quickly, a person often doesn’t even have to face criminal charges being filed against them. Unfortunately, when a public defender gets involved in a case, it’s after an individual has already been charged with the crime. If you get an experienced Bucks County criminal defense lawyer at the outset, there’s a chance that the case can be dismissed, withdrawn or altered in any way prior to arrest. It’s that personal attention, the unlimited resources, the ability to move on a case from the very beginning that makes an experienced Bucks County private defense attorney stands out.

A private attorney can also help with any issues that can arise post-arrest. Therefore, it’s important to seek out the services of an experienced Bucks County criminal defense attorney, even just so the individual receives immediate attention, has unlimited resources and has that personal attention to get to the bottom of things immediately. In a lot of ways, this prevents any unnecessary humiliation or embarrassment, as well as person’s livelihood, by expediting a criminal investigation and clearing their client.
