Experienced Criminal Defense Attorneys In Shreveport, LA

The Barkemeyer Law Firm is a group of highly-experienced criminal defense attorneys and DWI lawyers in Shreveport, Louisiana. Our attorneys only practice criminal defense. We are not also personal injury or divorce lawyers. The ONLY type of law we practice is criminal defense. Therefore, we are good at it.

Regardless of the type of charge you received, we can help. We defend clients in all areas of Louisiana, not just Shreveport. Therefore, if you were arrested or received a summons in Bossier, Minden, Ruston, Natchitoches, Alexandria, or Monroe, we can help.

DWI Defense

Handling DWI cases is unique due to the intricate relationship between the criminal case and various aspects of the defendant’s life, such as their driver’s license, professional license, employment, education, insurance, and more. Each DWI case presents a unique set of circumstances, shaped by the specifics of the arrest and the defendant’s personal situation. Our approach to representation is highly individualized, as our ultimate objective is to safeguard our clients’ careers and criminal records.

Our clients possess diverse employment backgrounds, hold various licenses, and have differing criminal histories and familial responsibilities. We recognize and respect these differences, which is why we offer adaptable and compassionate legal support tailored to each client’s distinct needs. Our commitment lies in determining the most effective way to serve each individual client, ensuring their best interests are at the forefront of our representation.

We regularly defend clients for simple possession, possession with intent to distribute, distribution, drug trafficking, felony possession of drugs, and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

Our clients range from someone who had a personal amount of cocaine on them when they got arrested for a DWI to individuals arrested with ten kilos of cocaine while traveling on I-20. Therefore, we have seen it all and we know how to fight drug charges through suppression issues to sentencing issues. To learn more about our drug charge defense, click here.

Theft Defense

We represent clients for theft charges in Shreveport and the surrounding areas. Theft charges can be either a felony or misdemeanor, depending if the value of the alleged stolen item(s) is worth $1000 or more. Many of our clients have been accused of shoplifting at Walmart, Belk, Home Depot, Target, and more. We know how to protect our client’s criminal records for misdemeanor theft charges. These clients come to us very concerned about going to jail and not being able to get a job again due to having a theft on their record. This is a very serious concern. However, we are very experienced at getting excellent outcomes in these cases.

We defend clients with felony theft charges including other ancillary charges such as forgery, access device fraud, bank fraud, misapplication of payments, unauthorized use of a moveable, failure to return leased moveable and more. Learn more about our theft defense representation here.
