    Why experience matters in criminal law
    The attorneys at Delise and Hall have handled major criminal cases in both Louisiana state and federal courts. Our goal is to protect the rights of an accused throughout the criminal process including (but not limited to) arrest, arraignment, grand juries, pleas, discovery, pretrial hearings, trials, jury selection, evidence, motions, and even posttrial remedies. This may include any number of legal matters which may make an enormous difference in the outcome of your case.

    Important steps we take before official charges are filed:
  • Protect your rights during an investigation
  • Ensure legality of an arrest and interrogation
  • Oversee any interactions with law enforcement

  • Important steps we take after charges are filed:
  • Work to reduce charges or dismiss the case entirely before it goes to trial
  • Develop a compelling defense through witness interviews, expert testimony, locating relevant evidence, and talking to witnesses for the prosecution
  • Attempt to settle on a plea bargain that is acceptable to the client
  • Although the advantages to a strong criminal lawyer are clear once the trial begins, the lawyer will be able to do the best job if you hire them as soon as possible. As you hesitate, the prosecution is working to build their case. Remember that a criminal lawyer is someone who is looking out for your best interests, from the moment you retain their counsel and throughout the process of dealing with criminal accusations.
