Criminal Defense Attorney in Baton Rouge LA


Carl Barkemeyer, Criminal Defense Attorney


Your Criminal Defense Attorney

Carl Barkemeyer grew up in Baton Rouge. He graduated McKinley High School. Obtained his law degree from Loyola Law School in New Orleans. At that time and beyond, he became a Golden Gloves boxer.  He defends clients like he used to box...he doesn't let the prosecutor or judge control the case and run all over his client. Since law school, he has devoted his career to fighting for his clients with criminal charges to protect them from prosecutors.


Born a Defense Attorney

Mr. Barkemeyer is not a former police officer or prosecutor.  After law school he chose to work for the public defender’s office instead of the prosecutor’s office.

He has defense-attorney in his blood. Mr. Barkemeyer has never had an interest or desire to prosecute the accused.  His career went from public defender to private practice in 2010.  He was able to make the transition easily since he always represented defendants as opposed to prosecuting them before, then switching to defending them.  So, if you hire Mr. Barkemeyer, you do not need to be concerned if your criminal lawyer once arrested or prosecuted you or a friend.


Years of Experience

Mr. Barkemeyer has over 16 years of experience defending clients charged with crimes in Louisiana. His practice has primarily been criminal defense his entire career. He has represented over one thousand clients on criminal matters in court. That's a lot of cases!!
