Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer Serving New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Lafayette, LA

At Mansfield Melancon Cranmer & Dick, we can provide you with an experienced criminal defense lawyer who will be dedicated to your case. We serve residents throughout the state of Louisiana, including the New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Lafayette areas.

About Our Firm

We represent individuals in complex criminal cases at every stage of criminal investigations and court proceedings in both federal and state venues. We implement a unique, individualized approach in every criminal case. Because we understand that the best resolution of a criminal case is achieved when no formal charges are ever brought against our clients, we work diligently to resolve investigations quickly and favorably—prior to adverse action. However, if you are facing formal charges, we will implement a defense strategy that is both aggressive and focused on protecting you and your constitutional rights.

Types of Criminal Defense Cases We Handle

We are equipped to handle a variety of criminal defense cases, including those involving DWIs. There are several defenses we may be able to utilize to help you with your DWI case. For instance, if you were the victim of an improper stop, we may be able to have certain evidence excluded from your case. You may also be the victim of an inaccurate field sobriety test.

We also represent clients who have been accused of white collar crimes. This includes everything from health care fraud and identity theft to bribery and insurance fraud. Some of our other practice areas include federal criminal defense cases, misdemeanor criminal defense cases, and criminal expungement cases.
