"The public defender epitomizes why so many have entered law school. They seek not fame or fortune. Instead, they seek the higher level of professional satisfaction of representing the people who most need legal representation. Public defenders stand alone, armed only with their wits, training and dedication. Inspired by their clients’ hope, faith, and trust, they are warriors and Valkyries of those desperately in need of a champion. Public defenders, by protecting the downtrodden and the poor, shield against infringement of our protections, and in reality, protect us all." Hightower v. State 592 So.2d 689 (Fla. 3 rd DCA 1991).
