Criminal Defense Lawyer Defending the Accused

When you're facing the resources of the prosecutor's office, you need a lawyer who will provide you with quality criminal defense. You need someone to help you level the playing field and give you a fighting chance.

I started my Lafayette, Louisiana, law firm to make sure you could have quality criminal defense representation. I try to be more than a Lafayette, Louisiana, criminal defense attorney. I will fight to defend your future in court, but I will also do whatever I can to help you. If you are dealing with alcohol or drug related issues, I am connected with many different resources to assist you.

My clients are more than just case numbers to me, so I try to be more than just a lawyer to them. I fight to win my clients' cases, but I also have resources to get them help for any alcohol, drugs or violence issues that underlie the crimes.

I have represented Lafayette Parish and St. Martin Parish clients in many areas of criminal defense, including:

  • DWI, DUI, OWI: If you have been charged with drunk driving, I can help you with your criminal defense needs and assist you with your administrative driver's license hearing before the Office of Motor Vehicles.
  • Vehicular crimes: I can defend you against negligent homicide or vehicular homicide charges, and connect you to resources that can help you recover from the emotional trauma of the event.
  • Drug crimes: I can negotiate with the prosecutor and defend you at trial for any drug possession with intent to distribute, manufacturing, or distribution charges.
  • Prescription drug crimes: If you are charged with a crime that stems from the possession, manufacturing, or possession with intent to distribute prescription drugs, I can represent you through the criminal process. If the prescription drugs have become an addiction of yours, I will assist you in obtaining the help you need.
  • Violent crimes: If you are facing battery, aggravated battery or assault charges, I can fight for your future.
  • Internet and computer crimes: I can help defend you from identity theft or fraud charges stemming from use of a computer or the Internet.
