Criminal Defense Attorney In Shreveport, Bossier City, Monroe, & Ruston, LA
Immediate action is required in combating vehicular homicide charges. Without immediate investigation of the facts, evidence often disappears and witnesses forget what happened.

He can locate expert witnesses to testify on your behalf. Eric also advises you on what your rights are in responding to questions by police officers or investigators for insurance companies.
