An Experienced Advocate And Counselor In Criminal Defense And Family Law

A legal problem such as a criminal charge, divorce or insurance dispute is a heavy burden. It is difficult to move forward in your life until it is resolved.

I am Andrew W. Wise, an attorney with more than 30 years of experience in the Louisiana court system. My mission is helping people in the Houma-Thibodaux area resolve difficult legal problems. I respond promptly when clients call, listening closely as they discuss their problems and then offering them compassionate counsel and guidance. When necessary, I provide vigorous representation in court.

Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer

Much of my work focuses on criminal defense law. I work tirelessly to protect the rights and preserve the freedom of people accused of DWI and drunken driving charges, property crimes, drug crimes, and other felony and misdemeanor crimes.

My goal in your case will be to obtain the best possible outcome for you.
