Public defenders make less than private defenders and private defenders make more than public defenders. Public defenders make less than private defenders do, and private defenders make more than public defenders do. Because public defenders need a lot more money to cover their bills and to keep their office space filled, they have a longer commute and are more likely to be in court for longer.
Since the public defender system is so expensive, that means people spend more time in court than they are getting paid. Meanwhile, private defense attorneys make more money because they can charge more for their services. And the more people who can afford to hire private counsel, the more the system becomes more efficient and provides less for public defenders.
While you might not think that private defenders are good for public interest, there is some truth to the notion that they provide a much needed resource for people who can’t afford to hire a public defender. This is the case in many places where government has been cut back, but private defense attorneys don’t always have the money for their services. In some cases, they have to take on cases that private attorneys can’t handle.
In New York, for instance, public defenders are required to have a certain amount of assets to be eligible for compensation. They do this to ensure that if someone has a case against them, they arent financially able to pay for their own defense. This means they can still use public defenders. In Massachusetts, for instance, public defenders are required to be able to pay for the case that they handle.
If I were to be blunt, these are the same people that we spend time in the office with, and they are the most qualified to handle your specific case. If you happen to have a case against a public defender, then they are the ones who should be asking for compensation. If you don’t, then you are likely better off hiring a private attorney, and that is the best guarantee you can get.
I would love to tell you how much I make, but I can’t. The amount I make is something that I have no control over because I’m not a public defender. I would love to have a better explanation, but I am not allowed to. I’m on the “public defender” list because I’m the only one who gets paid.
I would make much more money than I do if I were a public defender. I make around $25 per hour on average. That is a lot, but it is what it is. If you are a high school student who is in need for the money, and cannot get a job with a public defender, then you need to look for jobs with private attorneys. These attorneys get paid around $100 an hour.
I have no idea if it is possible to make a better explanation, but it is possible to make a lot more money doing a different job than a public defender. For example, I could be a financial advisor and make 100 per hour. If I started and worked at that same rate, I would be making around $1,000 per hour. So, I could make more per hour than the average public defender, and I would make a lot more than the average financial advisor.
There is a lot of “public defender” in the title. The typical attorney I know makes $75-$80 an hour in court. The typical public defender makes as little as $50-$60 an hour. This means that, while public defenders are making more money, they are losing money.
The public defender in the title is not a typical public defender. The average public defender makes more than $75,000 per year. Public defenders are paid by the state, so they have to spend a great deal of their own money. They also have their own office, which can be a pain in the ass. They don’t have to commute, or deal with traffic, or be able to work from home. They just have to defend people, and they can’t afford to.
