Few life events are quite as frightening as facing criminal allegations. Many Louisiana defendants feel understandably confused and overwhelmed when faced with potential jail time and a criminal record. While this can feel isolating, you are not alone -- planning a comprehensive criminal defense alongside an experienced counsel can be incredibly helpful for anyone accused of a crime.
If you are facing a criminal charge, every aspect of your life can be impacted. Not only could you possibly have to spend months or even years behind jail, but you might also be on the hook for steep fines. This can apply to many different criminal charges, including:
- Drug possession
- Property crimes
- Gun crimes
- Assault and other violent crimes
- And many more
Many defendants worry about losing their current job if they are incarcerated or being held in lieu of bond. A criminal record could also affect potential future employment opportunities, all of which can place an enormous financial burden on your life. There are also the social implications of a criminal record, which can have a profound impact on mental health and well-being.
Early defense preparations are often key to minimizing the possible negative impacts of criminal charges and convictions. Since Louisiana law is constantly changing, experienced representation can play an important role in building a criminal defense that most accurately reflects the current legal climate.
