Stephen Rue Attorney Awards

We Defend Against Felony Charges

felony lawyer new orleans - felony charges

Since 1991, Stephen Rue & Associates has been handling serious legal matters for clients throughout the Greater New Orleans area. Felony lawyer Stephen Rue takes his job incredibly seriously. Our firm fights hard and does what it takes within bounds of the law to get positive results.

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.

Many of these matters include felony charges in Louisiana state courts:

  • Felony DWI/DUI (drunk driving)
  • Felony drug distribution or other drug charges
  • Homicide/murder defense
  • Battery/assault
  • Rape
  • Resisting arrest
  • Illegal possession of a handgun by a felon

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.

Brilliant Attorney!

At the end of my first visit with Mr.Rue I was extremely impressed with him and his staff. 2 years later still extremely impressed. At all times I felt as my situation was as important as if it were his own family Stephen had every answer everytime and an idea as to how to approach each situation..Stephen is the most thorough and knowledgable attorney I have ever met, he leaves nothing to chance. This guy is truly a hero to my daughter and I achieving what I thought was the impossible. You will not be disappointed with Stephen and his staff I am eternally grateful to all of them
