Experience and Dedication Matters for DWI Defense

We are a DWI law firm located in New Orleans, Shreveport, and Covington, Louisiana. Mr. Barkemeyer has focused his practice on DWI defense for over fourteen years.

Every client’s DWI case is different

We recognize that everyone’s case is different because every individual is different.  The facts of the stop, field sobriety tests, breathalyzer and other chemical tests, and other information are all different from case to case. Also, each of our clients have different personal and work lives that the DWI may affect. We take all this into consideration when determining how to defend our clients. We speak to our clients to learn about them and their situation and so they understand the court process. This helps our clients because we can build a DWI defense strategy that works best for each client. We strive to be the best DWI lawyer we can be for our clients.

Dismissals and Reduced Charges

Our goal in all cases is to keep our clients out of jail and get their charge reduced or dismissed. There are many strategies we use to defend our clients. Every case is different and every client is different. We understand this and know that every criminal case needs a unique approach and strategy.

Dismissed cases and reduced charges are important for our clients because it helps reduce jail-time exposure and protects their criminal records by making them eligible for expungements. Our goal is always to protect our client’s criminal record so they can continue to go to school or work.
