Hire a Private Attorney or Stay with the Public Defender’s Office

This past year, Public Defender Offices all over Florida are in crisis. With the major budget cuts, individual assistant public defender’s case loads are growing larger every day. In Miami, the public defenders caseloads are around 500!

The budget crisis has also effected the Jacksonville, Clay County, and Nassau County Public Defender’s Office. While many public defenders are good lawyers, due to extremely large caseloads, it is difficult to give each criminal client and their families individual attention.

When you hire The Forbess Law Firm, our Jacksonville Criminal Law Firm, our Jacksonville Criminal Defense Lawyers are available to you and your family 24 hours a day.

If you have been arrested in Jacksonville, Clay County, Nassau County, or St. Johns County, contact our Northeast Florida Criminal Lawyers at (904) 634-0900.
