Criminal Defense
The Law Firm of Jerome W. Matthews, Jr., LLC is a full service law firm dedicated to helping New Orleans residents navigate the complex legal system.
When faced with criminal charges, nothing is more important than taking whatever measures are necessary to ensure you are not found guilty. That starts by contacting a skilled criminal defense lawyer. Criminal charges can quickly lead to a conviction without the proper defense. Hiring a knowledgeable and seasoned defense attorney to defend your interest and fight your charges will significantly increase your chances of winning your case and avoiding a conviction.

Many attorneys are simply a lot of talk, too expensive, and unresponsive to your needs. I believe in immediate action and results. I am available and respond 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Let me use my experience to guide you through the stress and confusion of the Louisiana criminal justice system.

I have the knowledge and skill to defend people against numerous crimes, such as DUI, theft offenses, drug crimes, weapons charges, domestic violence, assault & battery, license suspension, hit & run, probation violations, sex crimes, and many more. Upon conviction of these criminal charges, you will be sentenced to number of penalties that will negatively affect your life for years to come. Regardless of your specific charge, I can defend your rights, and help you get though this difficult time.
