Criminal Defense Overview

Get A Defense That Protects Your Future

Sometimes, life throws you a curveball in the form of a criminal charge. If you face an entanglement with the Louisiana criminal justice system, you do not have to give up hope. A robust criminal defense can protect your rights and preserve your freedom.

At Law Office of Laura L. Davenport, this is exactly what I do. As a dedicated criminal defense attorney, I defend my clients from a wide spectrum of offenses, including:

  • Driving under the influence
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Possession of a controlled substance
  • Manufacture of a controlled substance
  • Sale or trafficking of a controlled substance

There is nothing more precious than your freedom, especially if you have a family. I will do everything in my power to protect you from the harsh sentences of the penal system.

How Will A Conviction Affect My Children?

Criminal charges can feel particularly frightening if you are the parent of minor children. A conviction can not only land you in jail but also permanently alter your child custody schedule. Depending on your offense, many family law judges may choose to restrict your time with your children severely – in extreme cases, you may even lose your parental rights completely.

Because I also handle family legal matters, I know firsthand how to put up a fight for your parental rights. I have helped many mothers, fathers and other guardians preserve their custodial rights, even in the face of serious criminal charges.
