Defending You Against Drug Charges
Louisiana's I-10 corridor is a common place for people to be arrested for drug trafficking or any other drug related crime. If you are facing drug charges in Lafayette Parish, St. Martin Parish, Acadia Parish, or other surrounding Parishes, you have the right to dedicated defense counsel.
Since becoming a criminal defense attorney in 2003, I have been focused on fighting to protect my clients' rights. The prosecutor will do whatever it takes to convict you; you are the accused. My law firm can help you level the playing field and help you seek the best possible results. Contact me.
Types of Cases
I can defend you against any drug-related crimes, including:
- Possession with intent to distribute
Our first concern is getting you out of jail. Judges often set bond quite high for drug charges. I can file for a bond reduction and do everything possible to get you out of jail and back with your family during the trial. I will investigate your case to determine the quality of the prosecutor's case against you, considering factors like:
- The search of the vehicle, person, or residence
- The officer(s) that made the stop, search, and arrest
- The owner of the vehicle
- The location of the narcotics
- The quantity of the narcotics
- The type of narcotics
- Any statements made to the police
- If drugs were found in a residence, I investigate the circumstances surrounding the entry into the residence
- The potential penalties that you could receive
- Whether there exists any potential to have the court suppress state's evidence
Using these factors, I will consult with you to determine the best plan going forward for you and your family. Sometimes the prosecutor has a very strong case and it is in the best interest of the client to negotiate a favorable plea bargain, which may include a lesser offense. And sometimes it is more appropriate to take your case to trial and fight for a not guilty verdict.
I take an aggressive, proactive approach with research and motions, weakening the prosecutor's case from the beginning to give you the best chance possible in negotiation or trial.
