A: The best advice I can give is to USE A PUBLIC DEFENDER.

The court will appoint a lawyer at the Arraignment.

Public Defenders know that particular courtroom better than any private lawyer.

They deal with that Judge every day.......unlike a private lawyer that may only appear a few times a month (at best) in that courtroom.
