Experience and a History of Success

The attorneys at Damico & Stockstill have been practicing Louisiana criminal law for over 65 combined years. Mr. Damico served in the East Baton Rouge District attorney's office for five years before establishing a successful criminal defense practice. With a strong reputation among judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys throughout Louisiana, Damico & Stockstill, Attorneys at Law, has successfully represented clients in a wide range of violent crime matters including aggravated assault, domestic battery and homicide.

Over the years, Mr. Damico's representation with regard to serious violent crimes has resulted in numerous outright acquittals for crimes ranging from murder to domestic violence. He has secured hundreds of responsive verdicts in virtually every type of violent crime, as well as prosecution dismissals and Grand Jury No True Bills.

Mr. Damico has personally handled thousands of assault and battery, abuse, domestic violence, murder and other violent crime cases in the last 38 years.

Mr. Stockstill comes from a background of prosecution, having been one of the top prosecutors in the East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney's office for 18 years. During that time, Mr. Stockstill rose from handling the lower level violent crime cases to being named as a Section Chief and not only handling the most difficult and highly publicized violent cases in his section, but also performed duties as a teacher and advisor to other lawyers in the office.

Mr. Stockstill has very successfully crossed over from the prosecutor's role to that of an extremely aggressive defense attorney. His viewpoint and skill from the position of prosecutor added to the experience of Mr. Damico's extensive years as a defense Attorney has resulted in even more effective and successful representation for their criminal defense clients.
