Mr. Barkemeyer is a misdemeanor lawyer in St Tammany Parish, La. He defends clients charged with all misdemeanors.
Having legal representation is important to defend a misdemeanor charge because many misdemeanors are punishable by a sentence of up to 6 months in jail. Misdemeanor convictions may negatively affect the defendant’s record. This can hurt his chances of obtaining school enrollment and future employment. Most importantly, some misdemeanors are enhanceable offenses, which means that the first conviction can be used to enhance the sentence of the second conviction. Sometimes, the second conviction could be a felony. Mr. Barkemeyer will work to attempt to avoid the first conviction.
Examples of misdemeanors that Mr. Barkemeyer handles are DWI, DUI, Reckless Driving, Hit-and-Run, Public Possession of Alcohol (MIP), Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Possession of Marijuana, Simple Battery, Simple Assault, Aggravated Assault, Soliciting, Prostitution, Theft, Domestic Abuse Battery, Disturbing the Peace, Public Intoxication, Open Container, Resisting an Officer, Entering or Remaining after being Forbidden, and all other misdemeanors.
