After graduating from LSU Law School in 1979, firm founder Thomas C. Damico worked for five years as an assistant district attorney for the East Baton Rouge Parish. In 1984, he left the prosecutor’s office and began to apply his knowledge of criminal law in his own defense practice. Since then he has represented thousands of individuals, companies, and public officials.

Mr. Damico is a hardworking advocate of defendants’ rights and a lifelong student of the law. It is quickly apparent to clients and court officials that he enjoys criminal defense work and is very good at it. His success in state and federal cases has earned Mr. Damico a strong reputation among other defense attorneys, prosecutors, and judges.

Brent Stockstill graduated from LSU Law School in 1989 and immediately began practicing as a prosecutor in the East Baton Rouge District Attorney’s office. During the next 18 years of service in that position, Mr. Stockstill earned a reputation as an aggressive and successful trial lawyer. His performance in the job earned him the position of Section Chief in the District Attorney’s office. As Section Chief he not only handled the most complicated and highly publicized cases in the section, but he was responsible for the training of other lawyers in the office as well as investigators and staff.

It was that reputation, knowledge and experience that Mr. Stockstill had earned that caused Mr. Damico to seek him out for partnership in his firm. Mr. Damico needed an aggressive and experienced trial lawyer and sought to take the best one from the ranks of the District Attorney’s office. The addition of Mr. Stockstill met that goal.

At our firm, we handle drunk driving charges, drug crime charges and a wide range of state and federal criminal charges, as well as white collar charges.


At Damico & Stockstill, Attorneys at Law, we are committed to providing high quality criminal defense to clients from all walks of life. In each case we handle, our goal is to communicate effectively to the court and to our clients. We want defendants to clearly understand their options in each stage of the process.

Although our practice is focused on the State of Louisiana, we have represented clients in state and federal courts in New York, Washington D.C., Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Nevada, Georgia, Indiana, New Mexico, South Carolina, and Michigan.

We provide free initial consultations at our Baton Rouge law office. We charge a nominal fee for initial consultations conducted in prison facilities.
