New Orleans Violent Crimes Lawyer
Defending Clients Charged with Violent Crime in Jefferson Parish and the New Orleans area
Violent crimes can result from unexpected circumstances. Arguments with a friend, a partner, a spouse, or a stranger at a bar can escalate past the point of no return. New Orleans is known for its rowdy atmosphere, and mistakes are not uncommon. Before you know it, you may find yourself being hauled off to the local police station, facing charges that can land you in jail or prison for an extended period of time. If you are facing charges of violent crimes such as domestic assault, battery, kidnapping, or homicide, you need to retain the services of a seasoned New Orleans criminal defense team in order to keep your one mistake from ruining the rest of your life.

Innocent Until Proven Guilty
Violent crimes can often become politically-charged cases in the media and among the public, putting pressure on prosecutors to obtain a quick, severe conviction. Criminal cases involving charges of murder, manslaughter, arson, robbery/burglary, kidnapping, and rape tend to become a public spectacle. You need a New Orleans criminal defense lawyer on your side who knows how to manage cases involving these serious, emotionally-charged matters.
The Law Office of Robert S. Toale will not let the court of public opinion dictate the outcome of your criminal case. Your constitutional rights guarantee you a fair trial and freedom from the use of illegally-obtained evidence. If the police or prosecutor misbehave during your case, we will see improper evidence thrown out of court, and we will keep prosecutors kept in check from demonizing you in the press.
We also will not let the government pressure you into taking an unjust plea deal for a criminal conviction you do not deserve, just so that a prosecutor can save face. We will work to have weak charges reduced, dropped, or dismissed, no more than a fair sentence imposed, and will fight to demonstrate your innocence through trial where appropriate. You are guaranteed the right to a proper legal defense, and we will bring our decades of experience to bear in order to ensure that your rights are protected.
