Public defenders are attorneys who are made available by the court to defendants in criminal cases who cannot afford to pay for private counsel. You will have to qualify to be represented by a public defender by providing the court with your financial information, and even if you are found to qualify, you may still be liable for some costs if the court finds you have the ability to pay.
