You are entitled to choose any lawyer in Florida. If you are called for a police interview and are entitled to a public defender, the police may ask you if you have any wishes as to who will be the appointed general prosecutor for you.
If you do not specify a name for someone you want to defend, the district court will determine which lawyer will be appointed as the public defender. This may mean that the district court appoints a public defender for those who have little or limited experience in criminal proceedings, as many lawyers report interest in assigning defense missions.

How do I change my lawyer if I’m unhappy?
If you have got a public defender appointed to you who you are not satisfied with or if you feel that the lawyer does not have the experience required to give you the best defense, you may in some cases be allowed to change public defenders. One then applies to the court in which the case is concerned and asks to change public defenders. It is necessary to indicate why you want to change and explain what you are not satisfied with.
