Wanted - lawyers to work for low pay and too many clients who may go to jail if you mess up or sometimes even if you don't

This article from the Daily Press describes efforts to recruit new staff lawyers for the public defender's offices in Hampton and Newport News.

This article repeats the facts about the caps for court-appointed fees: "For felonies that carry sentences of less than 20 years, a court-appointed attorney gets paid a maximum of $395. For misdemeanors and juvenile cases, they can charge $112."
