Northwest Louisiana Criminal Defense Attorney

If you have been arrested or accused of a crime in Northwest Louisiana, or anywhere else in Louisiana, you are probably frightened, confused and concerned about your future and that of your family.

ANYONE WHO IS ARRESTED SHOULD REMAIN SILENT!

This means do NOT answer any questions asked by the police. Just identify yourself and politely say "I want a lawyer," and contact a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. It is important to remember that police officers are trained to investigate crimes and gather evidence to build a case against you. In their search for evidence, rules are often bent and statements are taken out of context in the pursuit of an arrest and conviction. Believe it or not, but most people provide the evidence needed to convict themselves to the police through confessions, statements, or other evidence. While it is always a good idea to be cooperative with law enforcement, it is important to do so in a controlled setting where you have access to competent legal advice.

AT THE LAW OFFICE OF F. EDWARD MOUTON, RESPONSIBILITY AS A CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY IS TAKEN SERIOUSLY, AND WE ARE AVAILABLE TO HELP YOU 24 HOURS A DAY, 7 DAYS A WEEK, 365 DAYS A YEAR.

Our Shreveport law firm is well aware of the inequality of power and material resources in the Louisiana criminal justice system. The State of Louisiana and United States Attorney's Office take advantage of an extensive staff of lawyers, police and agents, sophisticated crime labs and experts, and a huge budget provided by the taxpayers. This gives them a tremendous advantage because the legal system is based on the premise that "the whole truth" is that presented at the trial. If a person accused of a crime cannot challenge the government's case, or submit his or her own witnesses, then the jury by default will probably accept as true whatever evidence the prosecutor produces. At the Mouton Law Firm, we work to level the playing field with the vast resources of the government, and provide outstanding legal advice, representation, and results to clients accused of state and federal crimes throughout Louisiana. My staff and I appreciate the importance of defending the rights of the accused, and use all available means to ensure that our clients receive high caliber legal representation and access to justice. Our clients come from all walks of life and need a law firm with experience who get results. We have earned an outstanding reputation in Louisiana criminal law circles through hard work and experience, and are known for our efforts to repair an often-unjust criminal justice system.

FROM THE MOMENT YOU CALL... WE WILL BEGIN TO WORK ON YOUR BEHALF.

In addition to an acute understanding of Louisiana criminal law and procedure, we also have learned that communication is sometimes half the battle when representing clients accused of crimes. Clients need to know where they stand at all times, so that they can properly consider all of their options.

At our firm, we strive to always be approachable, responsive, efficient, and effective. We maintain flexible office hours, respond promptly to telephone calls, and keep clients personally informed of the status of their case.
