Lafayette Drug Crime Attorney

In Lafayette and most other areas of Louisiana, federal and state officials are very serious when it comes to drug-related criminal charges. Prosecutors on both the federal and state level are approaching drug offense cases aggressively.

You or a loved one may be facing a drug charge in Louisiana. Depending on the facts and circumstances, you may have several options available when facing drug charges in Louisiana courts. Whether the case demands a trial to defend against a wrongful arrest, a procedural motion to uphold your Constitutional rights, or detailed guidance in obtaining a fair plea agreement, having a dedicated drug or narcotic defense attorney on your side is the best way to combat against an overzealous prosecutor or an overreaching government official.

  • Possession of Marijuana

  • Possession of Cocaine
  • Possession of Heroin
