Since 1991, Stephen Rue & Associates has been handling serious legal matters for clients throughout the Greater New Orleans area. Many of the matters we handle have the potential to change lives, so we take them incredibly seriously — fighting hard and doing what it takes within the bounds of the law to get positive results.
Many of these matters include felonies charged in Louisiana state courts:
- Felony DWI/DUI (drunk driving)
- Felony drug distribution or other drug charges
- Homicide/murder defense
- Resisting arrest
- Illegal possession of a handgun by a felon
Our goal is to achieve the best possible results. Recognizing that each situation is unique, we use a strategy that works in your situation. We may seek to have an investigation stopped before charges are filed, to have charges dropped or reduced, or to have you found not guilty at trial. We also negotiate with prosecutors on your behalf.
Reduction of Felonies to Misdemeanors and Expungement
We often seek to have felony charges reduced to expungeable misdemeanors. After expungement, your criminal record will not be visible on most background checks. This keeps it from being an obstacle to getting a job, renting an apartment or possessing a firearm.
Juveniles Charges With Serious Offenses
We also represent juveniles charged with serious felonies. These matters can contain complex issues of law and fact, so it is critical that you work with an experienced lawyer. We work hard to free our clients of the burdens that they currently face with the Louisiana criminal justice system.
