        Question:

        Should I Use a Public Defender?

        Answer:

        We get this question every now and then. In fact, two weeks ago, we were speaking to a client who came in and they had been arrested. They bonded out. They were assigned a public defender upon their arrest and their time in jail and they wondered why they should hire an attorney. Why should I pay extra money to defend this when I could get representation from the public defender that they assigned me in the courthouse?

        Public defenders can be overworked, and they can be inexperienced. What you’re dealing with oftentimes are inexperienced attorneys and attorneys that have the lack of resources. Public defenders often manage thousands of cases at a time, so they really don’t have the time to devote to your case one on one.

        If you hire an attorney, they have the experience, they have the wherewithal, and more importantly, they have the time to devote to your individual case. Though the price may seem unnecessary at the time, this is really your freedom and your rights that need to be protected. Can you go with the public defender? Should you? We wouldn’t recommend it if you have the means or the ability to hire an attorney that has the time and the dedication to advocate for your rights because at the end of the day, your freedom is at stake so we think it’s very important to hire an attorney that is outside in the community dealing with these issues on a daily basis. If you have any other questions about being arrested or charged with a crime in Orlando, please give us a call.

        “In October 2015, My husband was a passenger in a horrible car accident and was hospitalized for two months. After being in ICU for a little over a month , I reached out to Mr. Corzo and He met me in the hospital a day after. Since my husband was still unconscious and in ICU I decided to hire Mr.Corzo for Davids personal injury and workers compensation case. From the moment I met Mr.Corzo he was very emphatic and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Anytime I would email him with a question he would get back to me right away. I would even email/text his paralegal Denise after hours if I had any questions and she would get back to me within a hour. Mr. Corzo made sure he fully explained and went over everything with us before we made any decisions. Mr. Corzo went out of his way to make sure David was taken care of. After my husband was released from the hospital, Mr. Corzo called and checked up on David and made sure he was getting the care he needed. I truly believe Mr. Corzo went above and beyond for my husband in winning both cases. We are extremely blessed with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone that may need a lawyer. Due to my husbands injuries we will need to apply for disability, Mr.Corzo offered to help us fill out the paper work and make sure everything is done correctly. We can’t THANK him enough for all that he has done for our family. #Thankful”– David and Jennifer Alvarez
