Carl Barkemeyer, Criminal Defense Attorney
Biography And Experience
Carl Barkemeyer, Criminal Defense Attorney is the owner and founder of Barkemeyer Law Firm. He graduated from McKinley High School in Baton Rouge, Centenary College in Shreveport, and earned his law degree from Loyola Law School in New Orleans. But his journey extended beyond the classroom and courtroom—while studying and beyond, he ventured into the realm of competitive amateur boxing, amassing over a hundred fights. Just as he once stepped into the ring with unwavering determination, he now defends clients with the same tenacity, refusing to allow prosecutors or judges to dictate the course of the case. His mission? To safeguard his clients from the clutches of criminal charges. Since graduating law school, he has defended thousands of clients with criminal charges.
Born to Defend
Unlike some, Mr. Barkemeyer didn’t tread the path of a former police officer or prosecutor. Instead, he opted for a role at the public defender’s office post-law school, steering clear of the prosecutor’s domain.
A true defender at heart, Mr. Barkemeyer never harbored any inkling to prosecute the accused. His career trajectory took him from the public defender’s office to establishing his private practice in 2010. The transition was seamless, thanks to his unwavering stance—always representing defendants, never prosecuting them. Rest assured, if you enlist Mr. Barkemeyer’s services, there’s no need to worry if your criminal lawyer was once on the opposing side, seeking your arrest or conviction.
Years of Criminal Defense Expertise
With over 18 years under his belt, Mr. Barkemeyer boasts a wealth of experience safeguarding clients facing criminal charges in Louisiana. His legal journey has been steeped in criminal defense from the get-go, championing hundreds of clients in court. That’s an impressive array of cases!
Drug and Alcohol Treatment Experience
Defending clients with DWI and drug charges such as heroin possession and more is not always about fighting at trial. Many of our clients have no desire to go to trial, mostly because they have a poor case. However, Mr. Barkemeyer still knows how to help his clients. He has extensive knowledge and understanding of drug and alcohol treatment and rehabilitation. While in law school, he was very involved providing volunteer services to a New Orleans drug treatment facility.
Since then, he has studied addiction and how to help those with addiction. His clients appreciate him because they can actually connect with him and know that he understands them. As a lawyer, he knows how to use addiction treatment to help his clients with their legal case, which also helps with their personal lives.
