“Compassionate Assistance and Aggressive Representation”

We are a New Orleans based law firm representing people in both criminal and civil litigation. Our firm is built on the foundation that every client deserves to be treated with dignity and kindness regardless of the legal issues they are battling. We always strive to provide high-quality, client centered advocacy.

New Orleans Criminal Defense Attorney

Our firm represents individuals who are facing state or federal criminal prosecutions in Louisiana. A large part of our criminal practice is dedicated to the defense of sex crimes and DWIs. We have obtained an overwhelming number of dismissals and acquittals in difficult cases involving well respected individuals. The outstanding results we achieve are largely due to the fact that we limit the number of cases we take which allows us to conduct thorough investigations, employ an aggressive pretrial motion practice and use innovative trial preparation tools.  Our firm also serves as local counsel for out-of-area and out-of-state attorneys. These impressive achievements demonstrate why we are a well-respected New Orleans law firm.
