About the Firm
Aggressive Louisiana Criminal Defense Lawyer Fights to Protect Your Freedom
Experienced defense attorney defends the rights of the accused statewide
Nothing is more important than protecting your freedom. When you are charged with a felony, misdemeanor or arrested for a DWI your entire life is on the line. A conviction may take away your freedom, destroy your family and affect your ability to make a living. I have over 35 years of experience of defending individuals throughout the state of Louisiana. I focus our practice exclusively on criminal defense, which allows us to maximize the possibility of a favorable outcome in your case. No matter the circumstances, I will fight for your rights in the criminal justice system.
Choosing the right lawyer is the first step to successfully defending against criminal charges. Many clients choose our firm because they have found us to be:
- Experienced litigators -- At my firm, you don't have to worry about us plea bargaining every case because we are afraid to go to trial. I have been lead counsel in over 300 criminal jury trials. Your case will not be compromised by the lack of experience or fear of litigating.
- Focused advocates -- I focus 100 percent of our practice on criminal law, allowing us to concentrate on developing the knowledge and skill set necessary to zealously represent the interests of the accused. I teach other attorneys about criminal defense and have served as a lecturer to the District Attorney’s Association and at DWI training seminars.
- Innovative strategists -- When it is in our client's best interest, I work with the State to have the criminal charges against our clients decriminalized.
I am dedicated to upholding the constitutional rights of the accused in Louisiana. I fight tirelessly to deliver favorable results.
