The court appointed criminal attorney IS NOT a criminal attorney and she refuses to file motions, deliver discovery, visit her client or even talk to her client so now he's trying to file his own motions in his matter.
Generally speaking, you can purchase a criminal practice and procedure book online. Some of the used books are cheaper, but they may be out of date.
