Dedicated and Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney.

If you or a member of your family has been arrested in Louisiana, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney that will work hard to get the best results. I've handled hundreds of criminal cases involving serious felony charges in both state and federal courts, and have a proven record of success. In my experience, the best results come from thoroughly investigating  the charges and preparing each case for trial. Whether it is a drug case, domestic abuse charge, or another serious felony, you need a good Louisiana lawyer that is prepared to fight for you throughout the entire case from arraignment through trial. My law firm provides each of its clients with personal attention and I am committed to getting the best results for my clients.

Don't trust your case to an over-worked, under-paid public defender and don't try to navigate the complex legal system yourself. Putting an experienced criminal defense lawyer to work for you will give you the best possible chance of beating the charges or getting the best deal. If you want an attorney that will fight for you in the courtroom, then hire me and put a good Louisiana criminal defense lawyer to work for you.

The initial consultation is free. I will answer your questions and quote you a flat fee price so there are no surprises. There can be quick deadlines in criminal cases and waiting can hurt your case.Call my office in Baton Rouge, Louisiana today to see about putting a Louisiana lawyer on your side.

Our office is in Baton Rouge but I have handled cases in areas across the state including Ascension, Assumption, East Baton Rouge, Jefferson, Iberville, Livingston, Orleans, St. James, St. Tammany, and West Baton Rouge. I also regularly handle cases in Louisiana federal courts.


There is no set fee for what a criminal attorney can charge. The amount that a lawyer charges will usually depend on several factors including the seriousness of the charges, the defendant's criminal history, and the attorney's experience and reputation. Below is an example of what I typically charge to handle certain types of cases. This is just for informational purposes and my actual fee for any case may vary.
