I am a defendant and I don't like the lawyer who is representing me. Can I talk to one of the prosecutors about my case?
All attorneys are governed by a State Bar of Michigan's Rules of Professional Conduct, which prevent them from speaking directly to anyone who is already represented by an attorney on the same matter. As long as you are represented by an attorney, we may speak only to your attorney. Any questions that you have about your case should be answered by your attorney. If you continue to be dissatisfied with your public defender, you will have to contact Shiawassee County Public Defender Douglas Corwin to discuss your concerns.
