Assuming you have the money to pay for a private defense attorney, there are several ways to find one who is experienced in the area of felony rape, including internet and standard phone book searches. Typically, I find that the best way to select an attorney is through referral by others, which is a good way to gauge an attorney’s reputation and experience. There are also several attorney rating websites, such as Avvo, which will allow you to see how others have rated a specific attorney. Of course, if you can’t afford an attorney, the court will appoint you a public defender, and it is up to that public defender office to appoint a competent attorney to represent you.
