We help with misdemeanors and felonies.
Frequently, out-of-town guests are arrested for municipal code violations, which are technically misdemeanors. If you received a paper summons, then you were technically “arrested” although you were not cuffed and taken in. A paper summons generally indicates that you are facing a municipal code violation or misdemeanor violation of state law. However, we have also assisted visitors who were arrested on felony charges.
We have over 30 years of experience in building solid criminal defense strategies here in New Orleans. We understand that you may be from out of town and that returning to New Orleans for your court case may be difficult.

Whether you are a resident or a tourist, it may be possible for us to appear in court for you.

We would, of course, keep you updated every step of the way.
