Frequently Asked Questions

Carbine Law Firm LLC handles various cases and represents many different individuals in New Orleans and throughout Louisiana. Below is a list of the cases that we handle. Please keep in mind that the kind of case you have may not be on the list, but we still may be able to help you. If we can’t handle your case, we will gladly recommend another New Orleans attorney who can. The cases and charges we handle include:

  • Drug-related crimes
  • DUI and DWI
  • Violent crimes
  • White-Collar crimes
  • Sexually-related crimes
  • Expungements
  • Firearm crimes

 

And several more…

Every client’s legal fees and every case are somewhat different, making it difficult to say exactly what your costs will be. They depend on many factors, including the severity of the crime, the hours it takes to put together your defense, and several more. However, your first legal consultation is absolutely free, with no strings attached. During that consult, we may be able to give you a better idea of what your final legal costs will be.

While you can certainly represent yourself in any of Louisiana’s courts, it is highly recommended that you do not. The reason being is that, statistically, the chance of winning your case is much less when you represent yourself. Also, if your case is complicated or the crime you’re being charged with is severe, representing yourself could be a huge mistake. Your freedom and your rights are simply too valuable to risk.

Here’s a fact; court-appointed attorneys are usually overwhelmed by their caseload. You are, in many cases, just another number for them rather than a person. Your case could easily get lost in the shuffle, as they say, and that’s not good if your freedom is hanging in the balance. Hiring a private attorney who will give you the time, energy, and expertise you need is, in many situations, a much better choice. 

The first thing you should do if you are arrested is to retain an excellent New Orleans attorney’s services. The second step is to protect your two most important legal rights.

  • The right to remain silent.
  • The right to have an attorney

We recommend that you do not speak to anyone except your attorney about your alleged crime. The more you speak, and the more information you give, the higher chance your words can be used against you later in court. We’ve seen many people make their situation much worse by speaking to the police, even words that, in context, appear to be harmless.

Even speaking to your family, friends, and colleagues is not recommended. If you say something incriminating to someone, and they’re compelled to testify at your trial, their testimony could be very damaging.

At Carbine Law Firm LLC, our main goal is to avoid a trial whenever possible. First, we will try to dismiss your charges completely. Next, lowering the charges significantly so that you avoid jail time. If we exhaust all other options, you may need to go to trial. The best way to find out is to schedule a free consultation with attorney Chris Carbine.
