Hey, I think public defenders and court appointed lawyers are underpaid, too. For what it's worth.
Sadly, across the board there has been neglect of the criminal legal system.
well, last congress there was the Prosecutors and Defenders Incentive Act (H. R. 2198 & S. 1091) to provide education loan forgiveness for us (and for them!). it never made it out of committee, but has been reintroduced in the House this term (H. R. 198).my office (appellate defenders, a state agency) loses approximately 1/4 of the attorneys each quarter; i'm sure it's the income to debt ratio.
