New Orleans Criminal Defense Lawyer
If you have been arrested or charged with a crime at the federal, state, municipal, or traffic level you need a New Orleans Criminal Defense Lawyer with experience who will fight for your rights. Criminal charges, alone, can be life-altering; convictions follow you the rest of your life. The Weiser Law Firm understands that you and your family are facing a crisis.
When should you hire a criminal defense lawyer?
A successful criminal defense begins as close as possible to the time of arrest. The battle is not only to avoid fines or incarceration or to get charges reduced or dismissed — it’s also to keep your record as free as possible from information that can harm your future: like getting a job, or pursuing a higher education.
Do not harm your criminal case by discussing anything with the authorities without the protection of a criminal defense attorney by your side. It is in your best interests to hire a criminal defense lawyer to represent you as soon as possible. If you believe that you may be charged with a crime, get a lawyer! Don’t wait for the formal arrest.
What can an experience criminal defense attorney do for you?
- protect your rights at the outset
- review the evidence and determine what is inadmissible or inaccurate
- investigate to find witnesses and documents that help your defense
- negotiate to reduce the charges
- negotiate to dismiss the charges
- interview possible witnesses for the prosecution for errors and exaggerations
- review documents of the prosecution for flaws and omissions
- determine what experts may be needed for the defense and get them on board
- negotiate a plea settlement with the prosecutor
- try the case, if necessary

What happens when you are arrested and jailed?
When you are arrested, you are taken to the “intake area.” There, you are searched, booked, fingerprinted, given a medical check, issued a standardized uniform (color-coded, usually by security risk), and then placed in a cell. All your personal items are inventoried and held for you; they are returned when you are released.
That cell can be with the “general population,” or it can be in a special area, as the authorities deem fit. This special area reserved for public officials, police officers, celebrities, and the like. They are created to make it easier for the officials to keep the peace, minimizing the risk to everyone involved.
