I heard public defenders are really underpaid compared to lawyers, is that true?

I want to be a public defender but could reconsider - I heard pay is little and workload is really big #lawyer #attorney #criminal-defense

Public defenders are lawyers. If you are only concerned about your salary, then a public defender is probably not a good position for you. Salaries vary with experience and field, but as a rule, a government attorney will make less than one in a private law firm. ALL attorneys have a large work load.
