Answer: If you are unhappy with your public defender, you may ask the court to give you a new public defender, although this request is not guaranteed to be granted. If you would like to hire a private attorney, a list of all attorneys licensed to practice law can be found on the Arizona State Bar website at, www.azbar.org. You can search by practice area to find a criminal attorney. The Modest Means Project has attorneys who practice criminal law, but only criminal misdemeanors, not felonies.
