Carter Law Firm can walk you through the halls of justice and make sure that you are treated fairly and respectfully.
Felony offenses in Louisiana include:
Working with a criminal defense lawyer early on in a case is essential. If an investigation cannot produce solid evidence, we may be able to have the case dismissed before anything is filed. Our team is willing to work harder than anyone - sifting through evidence, reviewing police reports, working with forensic experts, scrutinizing witness testimony, and more. We have been through the criminal process numerous times and know what to expect, which allows us to prepare accordingly. We can also push for reduced charges to a misdemeanor or take your case all the way to a trial in order to preserve your interests.
In addition to the devastating legal penalties such as jail time and fines, convicted felons are automatically stripped of certain rights. Convicted felons are not eligible to vote, apply for most professional licenses, and are prohibited from possessing firearms.
Having a felony conviction on your record can also haunt you in many ways - when you apply for jobs, look for housing, and even in your personal life. While some felonies in Louisiana may qualify for expungement and do allow for probation, the smartest way to minimize damage to your life is to work with an experienced criminal lawyer.
Our legal team brings a formidable combination of legal savvy, experience, and insight to each case. We have handled a broad range of felonies and know the criminal process inside and out.
There are no surprises with us. We know the right way to approach a case and the wrong way to do it. We know the right questions to ask, how to investigate a crime, and how to look at evidence from all angles. Our New Orleans criminal defense attorneys have developed an excellent reputation among judges and prosecutors, which often leads to better results for our clients. We are able to leverage this advantage to the benefit of our clients.
