Extensive Experience In The Criminal Courts
A criminal charge puts your future in jeopardy. At this critical point in your life, you need strong and effective legal representation.
My name is Andrew W. Wise, a Thibodaux criminal defense attorney who aggressively defends people accused of felony and misdemeanor crimes, including DWI charges. When I represent you, I will work tirelessly to protect your rights and obtain the best possible outcome, so that you can regain control of your life.
Criminal Defense Attorney Available For You
My law firm defends people accused of crimes such as:
- Drunk driving charges
- Burglary, theft and shoplifting
- Domestic violence
- Drug crimes — including drug possession and drug distribution
- Other felony and misdemeanor crimes
As your lawyer, I will provide results-oriented representation throughout the legal process, including the bond reduction hearing, arraignment, and all other court appearances and hearings.
A Comprehensive Defense Effort
I will carefully examine the events leading to your arrest, and the factual and legal issues that could lead to a positive outcome. Whenever possible, I will seek to get the charge dismissed, but if necessary, I will vigorously represent you at trial.
Many first-time offenders are eligible for alternative outcomes such as drug court or probation. I have good working relationships with prosecutors and judges in the Houma-Thibodaux area, and I have helped many people to obtain these types of outcomes. If the circumstances of your case permit, I will work to obtain an outcome that keeps you out of jail and preserves your eligibility for an expungement.
Getting An Expungement
If a criminal charge was dropped, you were acquitted, or you completed probation, it may be possible to get an expungement. This seals your criminal record and prevents most prospective employers from learning about your case. I can review your situation and inform you of your options. If you are eligible for an expungement, my law firm can handle all aspects of your case for an affordable, flat fee.
