*THIS SITE MAY BE CONSIDERED ATTORNEY ADVERTISING IN CERTAIN JURISDICTIONS* Private Criminal Lawyer Jamel Oeser-Sweat, Esq. quickly discussing whether someone should hire a private attorney during arraignment in New York City.  The decision to hire a private criminal lawyer is an important one.  You should choose an experienced lawyer and/or law firm that you trust.  However, it is important not to discount the work done by Legal Aid Lawyers.  Legal Aid handles the majority of the cases in the City of New York.  Other attorneys that are assigned by the Court are on a panel and often also have their own private practices.  Some people do not realize that despite the fact that they have been “assigned” a lawyer, the lawyer may be a “private” lawyer.  These lawyers are part of the “Assigned Counsel Plan” and are screened and must meet certain requirements in order to take cases.  These lawyers are also referred to as “18-B” lawyers. Click Here for a New York Times Article on 18-B Lawyers.
