Felony and Misdemeanor Lawyers

If you are charged with a crime, contact experienced criminal defense attorney Carlos Zelaya at (504) 277-8989.

Whether you’re a resident of Louisiana, or a visitor enjoying the great dining and night life in New Orleans, there are times when even the most careful visitor can run afoul of the law. Dealing with an arrest can be a very scary and intimidating experience. If you’ve been charged in Louisiana for a felony or misdemeanor, it’s very important that you seek help and reassurance through proper legal representation.

Although many misdemeanors are considered minor crimes, Louisiana Criminal Code defines a misdemeanor as any crime other than a felony. Typical punishments for misdemeanors involve a fine and, in some cases, up to a year of jail time. Misdemeanors in most states are classified in the order of seriousness as Class A, Class B and Class C Misdemeanors. But Louisiana law defines all felony crimes and specifies a punishment for each one. All other crimes are considered misdemeanors. Defending these crimes can be complex, so it is crucial that anyone charged with a felony or misdemeanor contact the criminal defense team at the Mumphrey Law Firm as soon as possible.
