What state? What did your attorney tell you when you asked him/her this question? What are your charges?

What US state?

You can't expect that any of us would be able to answer that question.

If you are not satisfied with the representation provided, you are free to hire your own attorney.

That depends on the state you're in. If you watch the documentary "Gideon's Army", you'll see examples of some of the limitations on court-appointed attorneys. In that documentary, one of the lawyers filed a motion to trick the prosecutor into analyzing fingerprint evidence because the defense attorney had no budget to do that.

Here in Massachusetts, I can file a motion for funds for an expert, and the court will pay the expert.

Since you didn't provide your state, there's really no way anyone can answer your question.

A public defender (in most states) must apply for and get court approval before hiring expert witnesses or investigators. The expenses are paid for by the state - and states can have limited budgets.
