Being convicted of a crime can change the course of your entire life. Because private defense attorneys are usually very expensive, the American justice system ensures that low-income defendants are entitled to a court-appointed attorney free of charge. If you cannot afford to hire a private lawyer, your first step should be to ask the court for a public defender. You may need to provide financial documents to demonstrate that you are unable to hire your own attorney. If you are unable to post bail and have been remanded to jail, a lawyer will be appointed for you during your first court appearance.
