When you are accused of or charged with a crime, your first step should always be to contact a criminal defense attorney. You can expect the state or federal prosecutors to treat your case seriously, and so should you. Even misdemeanors often carry heavy fines and possible jail time, and a conviction sets you up for much heavier sentencing should you ever be convicted of a crime in the future.
As a Louisiana citizen and a local criminal defense attorney, I have personally and professionally seen how hard the criminal justice system can be on people. Fairness is rarely considered, and the prosecution is usually hungry for convictions and will do whatever it takes to get them. Everyday people like you are caught in the middle.
As a trial attorney, I want to protect your rights and ensure that you are treated fairly by the court. Ideally, I will work to get your charges dismissed. In any case, I am fully prepared to represent you at every court date, from arraignments, to motion hearings and through a trial by a jury. Whatever the final outcome, I will be fighting hard from start to finish.
