STATE APPOINTED ATTORNEY

behind-bars3“I don’t want you – I want a state appointed attorney!” my client screams at me within 10 seconds of meeting him in the holding cell of div 30 right after I asked “why were you arrested?”

“Okay, I hear you,” I say and pause a moment. Then, I volunteer as if I’ve just discovered this information and I’m as surprised as he “I am a state appointed attorney.”

“Oh” he says. The interview goes much better from there.
