No sympathies.

I'm sure public defenders are often trying to get famous.

A good background to get a junior partnership in regular criminal law practice (that is one that does not primarily cater to the rich) is public defender. And some folks take relatively low paying public defender as a sort of apprenticeship in criminal law.

Another good background for same is public prosecutor.
