Our lawyers would be proud to deliver our services as your legal representatives. We would be able to successfully get you the best possible outcome if you contact us as soon as possible instead of as a last resort. In as much as we would still be able to achieve somewhat acceptable results if contacted in the last minute, we would be much more productive if you contact us and request our services as soon as the problem arises. This is because of the fact that when given sufficient time, we would be able to make adequate preparations. If sufficient time is given, cases that seem entirely against you could be reversed. This could be achieved as we would be able to negotiate with the district attorney or other authorities in charge of the case. This negotiation would be best handled correctly and with sufficient time on our side in order to get the best possible outcome. The outcomes referred to here include a client’s total legal acquittance or release with regard to any criminal charges and in severe cases the reduction of the proposed charges. At times the charges could be dropped and the client walks a free man and is able to return to his or her normal life.

Besides, the above outcomes can only be achieved if you have a very good criminal attorney and we have an entire team of reliable and experienced criminal attorneys. We provide criminal defense services that are popular in Ouachita Parish and the city of Monroe as a result of the aggressive nature of our criminal defense presentations during trials.

Thankfully, our attorneys have an edge over other certified but ordinary attorneys.  

There is no type of criminal case that we have not successfully handled at one point or the other. We can handle all criminal cases but listing them out would take up quite a bit of time so we would just briefly outline some criminal cases that we have attained a measure of success in handling in the past.

  • Burglary

  • Misdemeanors
  • Illegal use of firearms
  • Various gun charges
  • Minor in possession of alcohol
