Lake Charles Criminal Defense Attorneys

Fighting Tirelessly for Your Rights in the Lake Charles Metropolitan Area

Being accused of a crime—no matter how seemingly insignificant—is always serious. Law enforcement officials, prosecutors, and judges take all crimes very seriously and will often pursue the maximum allowable penalties. This puts your rights, your freedom, and your entire future at risk.

If you have been arrested for or charged with a criminal offense, or if you even believe you are under investigation for a crime, it’s imperative that you seek qualified legal counsel as quickly as possible. The prosecution may already be building its case against you.
