Legal Aid or Private retainer - does it affect work quality?

Does it affect the quality of work if a lawyer is getting paid through Legal Aid or if he is paid privately? I have the choice of getting Legal Aid to fund my defence or taking out loans and paying the lawyer privately (while remaining in debt for the rest of my life). I need the best legal work done and cannot afford low quality work or cutting corners. The charges are very serious and if I am convicted I could be in jail for 10 - 12 years (Criminal man-slaughter), lose my status in county (Immigration) and custody of chilf (Family). Does it matter to the outcome how the lawyer is paid?
