Criminal Defense

Whether you are charged with a misdemeanor, DUI/DWI or a felony, the risk of conviction is great and the consequences may be severe. Often those who are charged with crimes are not bad people they have just done bad things or have become associated with the wrong people. They need an attorney who understands their unique problems and the significance to their families and to their professions. There is an erroneous assumption that the system is inherently efficient and fair. Do not risk losing your freedom without someone who can assist in navigating the complexities of the criminal justice system with experience and understanding.

Civil Rights

As citizens we have the right to be free from unreasonable government intrusion. The right to free from unreasonable searches and seizures and the excessive use of force are only a few of the fundamental rights which Clay LeJeune will protect. The law prohibits any law enforcement officer who while acting under the “color of authority” of state law from violating the civil rights of any person or depriving them of fundamental rights secured by the Constitution. The law provides that those individuals shall be liable to the party injured in an action.

Alternatives to Incarceration

Louisiana incarcerates more people per capita than any other place in the world. You don’t have to accept incarceration as the only acceptable punishment. You need an attorney who understands that there are alternatives to incarceration. Sometimes people just need a chance to overcome a mistake or a problem. Clay LeJeune can assist in finding alternatives to incarceration.

DUI/DWI Defense

If you have been charged with a DUI or DWI offense, you may think there is no hope. There is almost always a defense that can be presented. At a minimum, charges and penalties may be reduced. Do not respond to questioning by law enforcement when stopped on suspicion of driving under the influence.  Often, the question is asked, “Did you have anything to drink tonight?” A simple, “I had wine with dinner,” turns into an admission that yes, you had been drinking.

Litigation and Family Law

For many the stress of litigation can place a strain on employment and family relationships. They need an attorney who is prepared to stand by them in all facets of the struggle. They need an attorney who will listen without passing judgment and who can guide them through the difficult process.
