Johnson Law Firm, attorney Eric Johnson works closely with his clients to ensure their cases receive the personalized attention they deserve for the best chances at securing a favorable outcome.
Whether you face charges for a misdemeanor or felony crime in Tallulah, you could endure significant penalties if you are convicted. Louisiana prosecutors are determined to keep criminals behind bars, and often seek the harshest penalties. Many drug crimes also carry mandatory minimum sentences, which prevent judges from considering mitigating factors to reduce the length of your sentence.

He can provide the same determination in your case
Cases We Defend
State troopers and local law enforcement officers are constantly on the prowl for suspects they can arrest and put behind bars. At times, in their overzealous attempt to keep the city safe, they may act rashly to close a case by charging the wrong suspect or filing charges for the wrong crime. Whatever the situation, our firm is determined to get to the bottom of it by launching our own investigation of the facts.
The following offenses make up a small sampling of the many charges we fight against:
- DWI charges
- Drug charges
- Violent crime charges
- Sex crime charges
- Weapons charges
- White collar crimes
Despite increased awareness of the dangers of drinking and driving, statistics continue to link a considerable portion of traffic fatalities in Louisiana to drunk driving. Police officers are keen to take these dangerous drivers off the road. If you are arrested for a DWI in Tallulah, our defense attorneys have established a robust DWI practice to fight for you.
What You Should Know about a DWI in Tallulah
A DWI can lead to a license suspension, steep fines, time in jail, mandatory SR22 car insurance, DWI or driving school, mandatory community service, and more. Additionally, people who have a DWI on their record often experience obstacles later in life. Even if you are never formally convicted of a DWI, a prospective employer may find your arrest on a criminal background check. It’s in your best interests to work with an experienced DWI attorney in Tallulah to challenge the evidence against you.
