Are you facing criminal charges?

The average person simple cannot understand criminal law in its entirety. The criminal defense attorney you hire must be familiar with federal, state, and local rules of the court, and have the necessary skills needed to defend your case. Making informed decisions and avoiding costly mistakes could be the difference in whether you are convicted and have to serve time in jail. Always choose the criminal defense lawyer with whom you feel most comfortable. It's okay to call a few and ask questions about their experience, prior cases, fees, payment and procedures.

Need an attorney in New Orleans, LA?

Find the right attorney by reviewing and comparing our profiles of lawyers and their law firms, with details on each attorney and their colleague’s practice, experience, education, training, honors and fee structure. Carefully consider client reviews and recommendations from people just like you. If you have complex legal needs, a larger firm with multiple attorneys who can advise you in different areas may be the best fit. If your needs are more limited and very specific, consider a smaller firm. Speak with several New Orleans criminal attorneys to find the one that is best for you.

Ask yourself the 3 C’s:

  • Credentials ‐ How many cases has this attorney worked on similar to yours?
  • Comfort ‐ Who are you most comfortable working with? Is the lawyer’s office nearby? How and how often will they get in touch with you?
  • Cost ‐ Have expected costs and fees been clearly explained to you? It’s OK to ask for an estimate.
