Out of State Client Help


At Damico & Stockstill, we understand the frustration of being arrested in a location in which you are not a resident. The inability to get answers over the phone and the expenses associated with appearing in person can be frightening. Confronting an unknown criminal justice system can be extremely difficult when you don’t have the ability to appear in person, and the matter may be almost impossible to resolve over the phone.

At Damico & Stockstill, we have represented many out of state clients who have never had to make a court appearance following their arrest.

Louisiana law and local court rules allow for a client’s presence to be waived by an attorney in many cases. While not all judges allow this waiver, Damico & Stockstill’s experience and knowledge allow us to eliminate or minimize your required appearance.

Damico & Stockstill has insight as to what information the prosecutor may like to know about the accused that could result in no-prosecution or a deferred prosecution based upon the completion of classes or programs in your home state or area.

Contact Damico & Stockstill so that we can give you a free evaluation based upon your charge and criminal history as to when and if you will have to return to Louisiana to face your criminal charge.
