If you are accused of a misdemeanor or a felony anywhere in California and you are unable to afford counsel, an attorney will be appointed by the court to represent you.

Most lawyers do some pro bono work, at least at some time in their careers. It would be rare for someone to do ONLY pro bono work - the lawyer has to make a living, too. Try legal aid - they probably won't take your case for a criminal appeal, but might be able to steer you someplace.

Where can I find a pro bono criminal defense lawyer.?

New postby Frida » 24 Oct 2012, 18:12

My little brother has a mental illness. When he was 17 he was accused aggravated sexual assault against another child that also had a severe mental illness. My brother is not competent enough to go through trial but is still locked up in a mental facility. I know that he has a strong case in defense but I need a lawyer that can represent him that is not court appointed. Please help

I don't know why you seem to think that a court appointed lawyer is inherently bad. Court appointed lawyers have a great deal of experience in criminal defense, and therefore in many cases are excellent criminal defenders. Pro-bono representation on a criminal matter will be very difficult to find. A case such as you describe would be very time intensive, and remember, lawyers are in business to make money.

You might be better of by speaking with his court appointed lawyers, and asking him/her to explain the case, and what he/she is doing for your brother. If you don't understand the explanation, then ask questions until you do.

Now.. depending on the state that you are in, if he is not competent to stand trial, then he will be held in a secure mental health facility until he is competent enough to stand trial. Some states allow an insanity defense. Some do not. Even states that allow an insanity defense usually have restrictions on it and you need to understand that mentally ill does not necessarily mean that he escapes responsibility for crimes committed.

You can contact your local or state bar association and ask them for a referral to any criminal defense attorneys who do pro-bono work.. but it will be a short list.

Pro bono at first instance (i.e., for pre-trial advice and the trial itself) only through the state-funded public defender or legal aid service. If you haven't the funds to pay a lawyer on your own, they MUST supply one. Of course he may be incompetent, and he'll have to work for peanuts in many jurisdictions -- that's the problem.

You might get some help from a support organization for guns, or if you're a minority from a civil rights organization. Or if your rights have been compromised by the ACLU or a similar group.

On appeal if your case is legally interesting for students and facult, a law school clinic may help. Indeed, if your case looks outrageous on its face you can try them now.

By and large lawyers aren't available directly pro bono except in high profile cases because, well because you don't work pro bono either do you? They've got to live. And if they did something wrong, even working for free, you'd sue them for malpractice. (It happens often.)

Where can you look to find lawyers willing to cake on criminal cases pro-bono?

A good friend of mine has gotten into trouble with the law. She's a good person, just made some bad decisions with the wrong people. She is facing criminal charges, and needs a lawyer, but is not in a financial position to pay for one outright. I know that some lawyers take on isolated cases pro-bono; how would she go about locating those kind of lawyers? Any websites, resources, physical locations, etc. would be helpful. She lives in Atlanta, GA.

Try the Public Defender's office, or the courts, the ACLU, NAACP, and the Legal Aid Office, if there is one. If the person is really strapped for cash and cannot afford a lawyer then the court will have to provide one. I suggest calling attourneys and try to find a good one that will accept installments. Pay him back so much a week or month. A lot of them will work with you on that kind of pay as you go basis. That's better than an overworked and underpaid PD. Many times they know nothing of a case until five minutes before having to enter a plea. Good luck.

My son was wrongly sentenced and have to do an life sentence he has been in jail for 11 years and because of his sentence he has been accused of different crimes, his appeal is coming up and they the guards has pinned an case on him that hew had nothing to do with. Like every you have to account for your mistakes and my son nows this he will and he has all we want is the truth to come out so he can do the time for his crime. Not the one someone else has given him.

How can I find a criminal lawyer in jax,fl that will work pro bono on my daughter's criminal case?

She is charged with principle to a carjacking, she has a court appointed lawyer that doesn't seem to be very interested in defending her.

Appeal to the Public Defender Office and get a new Lawyer. Be nice them they have heard it all. Make no excuses for the actions of your daughter only present information that will help her case.

Do you work pro bono?

Everybody wants something for nothing.

If the case is intellectually challenging, try a law school clinic. Otherwise the only pro bono is likely to be legal aid/public defender.

Only today someone called me for advice in getting affordable legal help for a man wrongly (according to children from his first marriage, and my own perceptions) charged with child sex abuse by a spouse who is using the charge to extort money in a divorce settlement. (It seems the spouse also said that he had hidden millions in secret bank accounts, patently false but she may actually believe it in her greed and mania.) I Googled the name of the assigned public defender and found he'd been up on charges, and then sanctioned, by his state's bar; and that he was generally incompetent. And a case like that needs expensive expert testimony, private investigators, psychiatric expertise, and so on.

It's easy to see why miscarriages of justice happen. And not just to the McMartins, the Salem "witches" and other objects of hysteria.
