Can I get a new court appointed lawyer if the one appointed to me doesn't make my rights his goal to defend

You are free to hire your own attorney. The court has already appointed one.

In what way do you believe the court appointed lawyer is not representing your best interests?

Probably not holding his hand and patting him on the head.
Right. Only private attorneys do that. :)

Court-appointed attorneys in Virginia, as a note, are generally assigned by the courts on a rotating basis. A defendant will be assigned the attorney who is next on the list.
