Criminal Defense & Family Law Attorney in Lake Charles, Louisiana

Jacob Colonna

Attorney at Law

I was born and raised in Lake Charles, Louisiana, which is one of the many reasons I am now proud to serve my city and neighboring areas like Sulphur, Westlake, Jennings, and Deridder, Louisiana. I opened the Colonna Law Firm, LLC in 2013 to pursue my vision of what client-focused litigation can be. I expanded my family law experience to encompass civil and criminal litigations in a way that never sacrifices compassion in the face of efficacy.

I Am Dedicated To You

When I started my firm, I knew I wanted to help as many of my fellow Lake Charles neighbors as I could. That is why I have always tried to serve a diverse crowd of people going through a divorce, charged with crimes, and seeking justice for themselves or loved ones. My coverage and experience speak for themselves, as I have offered litigation across the board. My legal expertise includes successful cases involving white-collar crimes, family law, misdemeanor, and felony charges, and theft. As a well-known defense attorney, I aim to find new ways I can serve my community while still offering the best litigation I can.

I primarily serve Lake Charles, Louisiana, but I also serve neighboring areas such as Sulphur, Westlake, Jennings, and Deridder, Louisiana. If you or someone you know needs a strong defense, one with the knowledge and compassion a client needs to face a fair trial, I will be there. You do not need to face prosecution, judge, or jury alone. Most defendants who represent themselves rarely receive the appropriate justice they deserve. But investing in a local who is here to serve you ensures you have every resource and choice available to you to not only pursue justice but never lose your rights along the way.
