Know your rights and make a plan when you face criminal charges

Spring break is coming up soon. While Lake Charles might not be a place that is usually associated with spring break, some of the other cities in the heart of Cajun country are. We know that you likely have every intention to enjoy spring break without breaking any laws. If something happens and you do find yourself facing criminal charges, you should think fast to ensure that your rights aren't being violated.

We understand that you might have some questions, especially if this is the first time that you have faced criminal charges. We can help you to learn about all of the rights that you have in these cases. You don't have to try to do this all alone.

One important thing that you must realize is that you have to think carefully about what you say when you are dealing with law enforcement officials. Everything you say, especially after you are read your Miranda rights, can be used if your case goes to court. This includes statements that might be misconstrued so be very careful about what you say.

You should work on getting your defense moving as soon as you know that you are going to have to fight against criminal charges. This gives you time to think about each of the possible options that you have so that you can decide which is the one you want to pursue. Whether you are working on a plea deal or ready to take your case to trial, we work on your behalf to resolve your case as quickly as possible and with minimal penalties.
