Criminal & White-Collar Defense

Our belief in juries is the same for civil matters as it is for criminal matters.  We continue to represent clients facing criminal charges because of our faith in the judicial system and our passion in helping individuals who face longs odds and the extraordinary resources of the government.  While we often represent clients in state criminal matters, we also represent corporations and individuals charged in white-collar criminal matters.  This includes regulatory investigations that involve criminal investigations by federal and state authorities.  We take pride in our history of representing public figures in high-profile matters.  For nearly forty years, members of the firm have been representing some of the most high-profile criminal clients in Louisiana.  This includes Barry Seal, Governor Edwin Edwards, and Rodney Pearce.

When we get hired in a criminal or regulatory matter, we rapidly deploy teams to assist clients with in-depth investigations to navigate through complex government allegations.  Our clients appreciate our ability to achieve short-term results while anticipating what may lie ahead. Our extensive trial experience means we can think through trial scenarios from the onset.

Our white-collar defense work includes financial fraud, healthcare fraud, anti-corruption violations, public corruption and regulatory disputes.
