    Pro bono lawyers for criminal matters are appointed at your first court appearance. If you financially qualify for the services of the public defender, the judge will appoint them to represent you. Usually, the public defender will be present in court and will then speak to you about your matter. And as to the "time frame" that you ask about, each case is different. Felonies and misdemeanors have different statutes that cover "speedy trial" rights. A ballpark answer is that some misdemeanors can resolve in a month or two, whereas some felonies may take several months.
