Criminal Defense

When a client is charged with a crime, our team goes to work. Whether it is a felony or a misdemeanor, the Joan Malbrough & Associates, A.P.L.C., team of attorneys can handle the job.

Joan M. Malbrough was contracted with the local public defender’s office from 1994 – 1998, obtaining experience in a wide array of criminal matters. We provide our clients with the immediate attention they deserve, and quickly schedule bond reduction motions, preliminary hearings, motions to suppress and motions to quash the indictment when appropriate. We have a good track record for successfully having charges reduced or dismissed, and negotiating plea bargains that benefit of our clients.

Our firm handles DWIs from the first administrative hearing that determines license suspension, through arraignment, pre-trial and trial. We know what to look for in the police reports, the district attorney’s records, videos and witness statements. We have tried cases before both 6 and 12 person juries. Our experienced legal team can handle any type of criminal case in any parish in Louisiana.
