What you need is a champion, someone who will passionately advocate for you and tell your side of the story.
That’s why I became a lawyer.
In Louisiana they say that there are two kinds of people, preachers and storytellers. As a former reporter and writer who grew up here, I consider myself a storyteller.
I am a storyteller who digs deep to find all of the pieces of the puzzle, all of the inconsistencies in an allegation, and all of those important details that could have been missed. Then I use those things to find and tell the truth.
Because the reality is that behind every successful case is a massive amount of preparation and hard work – preparation and research that is time consuming and tedious but absolutely vital to your case’s success.
Many lawyers choose to skip this step.
Instead, they depend solely upon the power of personality to try and win the case.
In my experience, this method is woefully inadequate, irresponsible, and at worst, off putting to judges and juries.
The details matter.
They matter because your freedom and your reputation can depend on them.
