Felony Crimes

In the state of Louisiana, a felony charge is the most severe charge available for alleged criminals. Not only does a felony conviction come with the harshest prison sentences and fine amounts, it also has wide-ranging effects that can severely inhibit your social, professional and financial well-being. After a conviction, the felony offense will be placed on your permanent criminal record, which anyone who feels the need to, can publicly view.

DWI / Drunk Driving

A DUI/DWI arrest is an urgent situation that must be handled with care. If convicted of drunk driving in Louisiana, you face steep fines and driver’s license suspension. Depending on the nature of the charge, you could even face incarceration.  Attorney Jeff Hufft understands the high stakes of DUI/DWI arrests and are prepared to help. He is well-versed in successful DUI/DWI defense strategies and can come to your aid in this critical legal matter.

Federal Crimes

When it comes down to it, there are two different ways in which you can be charged with a federal offense in the state of Louisiana.

First, the more common charges stem from a violation of federal law. The second way that you can be charged with a federal offense is by committing a crime on federal property or against a federal agency. This could include, but is not limited to: airports and/or airplanes, Federal government buildings and Federal/National parks.

Probation Violations

Individuals run the risk of having their probation revoked if accused of any probation violation. Attorney Jeff Hufft is experienced in fighting violation of probation cases throughout New Orleans and the surrounding parishes.  He often knows the particular procedures favored by the prosecutors that handle these cases, as well as the judges that will decide the probation violation case can make all the difference.

Capias / Bench Warrants / Attachments

The majority of Louisiana citizens with a bench warrant or alias capias warrant out for their arrest did not fail to appear in court on their assigned date and time due to a wanton disregard for the law; rather, the failure to appear most likely occurred due to forgetfulness, a valid excuse, or a strong fear and/or misunderstanding of the Louisiana legal process.

First-Time Offenders

Being arrested and charged with a crime for the first time can be an intimidating and confusing experience. You may not be sure of your rights and you may not know what to expect. Whether you have been charged because of a misunderstanding or you made a mistake, it is crucial you have an attorney guide you through the process.
