    Default How to Get a Public Defender

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Virginia

    I was wondering the requirements for getting a public defender and how to do so. I am 19 and in college I currently do have a job but most likely will not when I move up to school. I am renting an apartment with the grants and loans I receive from school. I do not own a car. Do my parent's finances matter in the case at all?

    Go to the court, ask for a petition for a court-appointed lawyer, complete it and return it, then see if the judge grants the petition.
