Facing drug charges? You may need an attorney on your side

Drug crimes in Louisiana are aggressively prosecuted. When a person has been arrested for a drug crime, such as possession, trafficking, distribution or manufacturing, they can be facing a tough court battle. Those who are arrested for drug offenses need a legal professional on their side to represent their interests.

If a person is convicted of a drug crime in Louisiana, they can be facing serious penalties. For example, possession of cocaine, one of Louisiana's most trafficked drugs, can lead to fines of up to $600,000 and 60 years of prison. Penalties are based on whether a person has previous drug convictions and the quantity of drugs that is involved. In addition, a person can lose their student loans, job or even driver's license,.

Our law firm understands the serious consequences a drug charge conviction can bring to our client's life. These consequences can be life-changing and cause a family extreme hardship. We can help lessen the impact of a drug crime to our client's life. We offer aggressive drug crime defense that may include investigating if there was an error with the search warrant, the drugs belonged to someone else, the drugs were planted by someone else, or the possibility of entrapment. There are many legal options that can be explored and it is important that you contact an attorney soon after an arrest.

Drug crime arrests need to be taken seriously. The consequences of a conviction can affect a person for the rest of their lives. Our law firm helps our clients exercise their legal rights and tell their side of the story.
