Default ? about public defender

who can i call about a public defender that is not doing his job. he wont return my phone calls, when his secretary says he will. he misread a fax that was sent to him by a rehab that my son was gonna get to go to. it said tuesday and somehow this smart lawyer read 2 weeks into it so put off talking to the judge. so my son lost his spot on the list. my son only sees him when he walks in the court. there must be some one i can call to step on this guys toes and get him moving.

Your son can petition the court for a change of counsel. That rehab thing might do the trick; at least petitioning might get the attorney's attention and wake him up a tad

Public Defenders work for the state. Contact the main PD's office in the state you're in.
