Are public defenders reliable when fighting a federal case? What are the pros and cons to then?

I am currently fighting a felony case with 9 counts and was appointed a public defender because at the time I couldn’t afford a private lawyer. It is a serious offense and seems like it could carry alot of time if convicted. Is it best to try and get my own defense lawyer or can a public defender get the same results?

Will I have a felony charge with an SIS?
I am currently going to court on a Class D felony 2nd Degree Domestic Assault and a Class E 3rd Degree assault. I have been offered a plea deal of dismissing the assault charge and getting an S.I.S. on the domestic charge with probation. However, I am currently CNA certified and hoping to go though the police academy at a later date. I am still confused as to if taking this S.I.S. will disqualify me from things a felony would disqualify me from and if it would show as a guilty charge on a background check.

If you have a plea deal, that suggests you have an attorney. You will have to ask your attorney to answer this question.
