We Defend Against 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.
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.
