Whether you face felonies or misdemeanors protect yourself

Coming into contact with police and the Louisiana criminal justice system can be frightening and frustrating. Whether you are facing misdemeanors or felonies, you need answers to questions about what you might be facing. Below are some of the answers you need to help you understand what comes next -- and perhaps more importantly -- how to protect yourself.

Even if you are only currently under investigation by police, you should be represented by an attorney. In some cases, this precautionary measure could prevent you from facing charges. In other cases, your attorney might be able to negotiate the filing of lesser charges than the ones you would otherwise face.

Just because you face charges does not mean that your case will go to trial. Many cases are resolved through plea bargains that reduce charges and penalties or provide you with the opportunity to participate in a pre-trail diversion program if this is the first time you have faced charges. However, that does not mean that you and your attorney should not be prepared to go to trial. Your advocate should approach every case as if it will end up in a courtroom in order to provide you with the best defense possible.

Public defenders are available for those who cannot afford an attorney, but that also means that they are overworked. Despite their best efforts, you could easily become just another file. Private criminal defense attorneys provide you with the personal attention your case needs in order to obtain the best outcome possible to the misdemeanors or felonies that you face. Many criminal defense attorneys in Louisiana provide you with a free consultation to discuss your case. This is your opportunity to determine whether you feel that he or she is the right fit for you.
