Defense Against Criminal Charges
If you have been accused of a crime, you have an uphill battle ahead of you. This is true everywhere, but perhaps especially so in Louisiana. Prosecutors are skilled, well-funded and highly motivated to secure a conviction against you, and our state imposes harsh penalties for all kinds of crimes.
The good news is that you have the right to a defense. To protect your freedom and your future, you need to make sure you have the best, smartest defense you can.
At Teresa King, Esquire, LLC, in Houma, Louisiana, we defend the rights and protect the futures of people who are facing criminal charges. We help people in Terrebonne Parish and throughout southern Louisiana in cases involving issues such as:
- Domestic violence
- Drunk driving
- Drug charges
- Traffic offenses
Talk To An Experienced Defense Attorney
One of the most important things to know about your defense is talk to your lawyer before you talk to anyone else about your case.
We have all seen television programs and movies where police tell a person that he or she has the right to remain silent, but many people don’t understand the full implications of this right. The police want you to give them evidence that will help the prosecution convict you. Don’t make it easy for them. Tell them you want to talk to an attorney.
A criminal defense attorney will represent you in your interactions with the authorities, defend your rights and work with you to develop the best resolution you can.
