Experienced Criminal Defense


If you or a loved one is the subject of a criminal investigation or has been charged with a criminal offense, you should consult a trusted and experienced attorney. It is not in your best interest to take any action without first communicating with a lawyer who represents clients in Louisiana and is willing to work your case as if it is their own. 

Even if you think your charge is minor, you should still retain aggressive criminal defense representation as soon as possible following your arrest. The Ambeau Law Firm is always ready to help you. Jarrett Ambeau is a criminal defense trial attorney with extensive experience in taking criminal defense cases to a jury trial in Louisiana and managing complex issues in the criminal defense context.

Our criminal defense team knows how Louisiana's prosecutors and criminal justice system work. We will evaluate the charges issued against you and investigate the circumstances of your arrest. We fight for you throughout your case by:

  • Seeking reduced or no bail
  • Representing you at all court hearings
  • Gathering evidence to craft an aggressive defense
  • Presenting defenses to the court
  • Identifying constitutional right violations
  • Negotiating with prosecutors on your behalf
  • Advising you of your options at every step
  • Representing you at a jury trial if needed

Protecting your rights is a priority for me in your defense. Too often our clients are presumed guilty until proved innocent, as a former prosecutor, I have experienced the in's and out's of bringing justice from the states' side, however, justice isn't always served for those who are deemed criminals. I am committed to making sure you receive a fair trial, no matter the circumstances.
