As one would expect in criminal defense matters, our clients often come to us anxious and confused about the unknown, in the face of governmental charges, investigation, and intrusion into their personal and professional lives.
Far too often our culture and even our criminal justice system is all too eager to presume someone guilty until proven innocent. This perversion of our system is dangerous and requires those charged to seek the help of experienced and talented advocates for their case.
At Sudduth & Associates, we commonly like to use the phrase that we “level the playing field” but we want to take a minute and explain exactly what that means. Think for a moment of all the resources in the possession of the State: officers to effect an arrest or issue a warrant, detectives to investigate a case and question witnesses, forensic equipment and laboratories to test evidence, and finally prosecutors, with their own investigators, armed with virtually unlimited resources with which to effectively prosecute the accused. It is as easy to see as it is disparaging just how stacked the deck is against the accused. That's where our criminal attorney in Lake Charles comes in. We use all of our resources to fight for you!
When you choose Sudduth & Associates, LLC, you’ll be represented by a team that consists of two former prosecutors. In this video, Attorney James E. Sudduth, III explains the strategic advantage of working with lawyers who know the judicial system from both sides of the courtroom.
