Defending Your Rights And Freedom

Jacqueline A. Scott & Associates will carefully review every aspect of your case, including the events leading up to your arrest. We will use every means possible to defend your rights and freedom, including the use of private investigators to develop additional evidence when it would be helpful to your case.

Our firm will use all of the available facts and the law to build a defense for you.

Alternatives To Conviction And Jail Time

In Louisiana, there are a number of programs that can enable persons charged with crimes to avoid a conviction or jail, such as diversion programs, drug treatment, deferred prosecutions, community service, and others. Our attorneys understand the rules for these programs and how to persuade judges to agree to these outcomes.

If you qualify and if an alternative program is right for you, Jacqueline A. Scott & Associates will work to obtain this result for you.

Jail Or Prison Inmates Can Be Victims Of Abuse Too

If you or a loved one has already been sent to jail or prison and are experiencing what you feel to be neglect or abuse from prison or jail guards or staff, contact us today to see if we might be able to file a lawsuit based on this institutional neglect or abuse.

An Expungement Can Seal Your Criminal Record

We also obtain expungements that seal or eliminate the records of certain types of convictions and arrests. This can enable you to put the event behind you and make a fresh start.
