Lake Charles Car Accident and Criminal Attorney Services
Our Practice Areas
Colonna Law Firm can offer you experienced representation in the following practice areas:
Colonna Law Firm, LLC generally only practices criminal law almost in the Lake Charles area, including including Lake Charles, Sulphur, and Westlake.
However, if you are injured, Colonna Law Firm, LLC will gladly also travel to Lafayette, DeRidder, Jennings, Oberlin, Baton Rouge, and the New Orleans area to represent you and get what you deserve for your injuries.
Contact me today if you have a legal question. If I cannot answer your question, I will gladly refer you to any number of attorneys across Louisiana that I know who are experts in that field.
Criminal Law is the most important area of law in which I practice. The fear of an attorney costing a person money is nothing compared to costing a person his or her freedom, and this is why Criminal Law is so important to me. The most important aspect of criminal law is my job to explain the process and expectations to my clients so that they fully understand what criminal offense they are accused of as well as the severity of that charge.
Lake Charles, Lafayette, and Baton rouge are three cities that have a lot of drug traffic due to Interstate 10, which means there will be many drug arrests, whether they are legit or not. If you find yourself in a situation and you need help, contact me.
As my mentor says, if you have been accused of a crime whatsoever, contact me IMMEDIATELY. No matter what anyone advises you, do NOT speak to anyone, law enforcement or otherwise, until you have been properly advised by an experienced attorney.
Divorce does not have to be a complicated process and it is in the best interest of my clients to seek out efficient, cheap avenues to getting a divorce. Colonna Law Firm, LLC offers cheap divorces for the citizens of Calcasieu Parish. This does not include custody, visitation, or property judgments. This is simply the process to get two parties who are not fighting a divorce for a low amount of money.
Louisiana offers two avenues to be divorced and both are based on time. If there are no minor children, typically the parties need to be separated for 180 days to gain a simple divorce. If there are minor children, the parties need to be separated for a full year. If you have already been separated for the adequate amount of time, divorce may be available for a little as $500.00,plus all filing fees.
If you have not been separated for the correct amount of time, please feel free to schedule a free consultation to discuss your potential divorce avenues and the pricing options.
When a person needs a lawyer to represent them in contested custody or visitation matters, they need an experienced litigator who understands the emotional toll that these cases take on participants. My philosophy with most domestic disputes is one of negotiation and settlement, to keep the power of decisions in the hands of my client and not in the hands of a judge who hasn’t lived through the experience. Also I promote less expense in divorce and working out problems is much more efficient and cheap than fighting over a long period of time.
Traditional Family Law practitioners often lose sight of the ability to settle matters, as more litigation results in more billing. Also, with outdated technology their efficiency is low. The Colonna Law Firm seeks to represent its client’s best interest first, including managing the emotions and expectations of a client. Allowing a client to get emotional while setting unreasonable goals will cause fighting and wasted billing. By being honest and establishing realistic goals, we can achieve results without bankrupting our clients.
We offer our services both in flat fee and hourly-billing options. We also offer payment plans.
First, you must make sure you call the police. The police are not there to arrest the person who hit you. They are there to create an accident report which is a crucial step in the process. The accident report will list the party the officer assigns fault and describe the incident. Insurance companies often require accident reports in order to process claims and may deny a personal injury claim without an accident report.
When you call the police an ambulance will be dispatched to your car wreck. If you think that you require medical attention, then go to the hospital for evaluation. When you are at the hospital, describe your injuries to the doctor in detail. This record will be used during your claim and may possibly be used against you down the line.
When you are done treating, contact an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss the next steps.
If you have been involved in a car wreck or an accident with an 18-wheeler, you need an attorney to protect your rights. You need to make sure that you get the money that is owed to you for your injuries and the best way to ensure this is to hire an experienced personal injury attorney. Contact Colonna Law Firm, LLC today.
It takes an experienced personal injury attorney to accurately calculate the value of a claim. If you have just been in a car wreck, no person will have any idea how much your claim may be. Any attorney who promises a recovery this early is not an attorney you can trust.
If you have been in a car wreck, your claim is based in the injuries you have suffered as a result of this accident. You may be entitled to a money award for personal injuries like pain, suffering, and other injuries your body and mind suffered. You may also be entitled to a money award for economic injuries like medical bills, lost income, and future damages.
You cannot calculate your personal injury claims until all injuries have been diagnosed and treated. At that point, an experienced personal injury attorney will be able to create an estimated value. The insurance company of the person who hurt you will be doing the same. Remember, their goal is to pay you as little a possible for your injuries. You need an experienced personal injury attorney to defend your rights and ensure you receive the maximum amount of money for your injuries. Contact Colonna Law Firm, LLC today.
We offer free consultations because we understand that after a car wreck, your life may be in chaos. You may be too hurt to work. You may have just lost your vehicle and cannot get to work. You may be in extreme pain with no idea what to do. We believe in helping our customers and community so we do not see any reason why you should pay our firm just for the honor of a consultation. Remember, when you are hiring a law firm to represent you for your car wreck injuries, the firms are selling themselves to you. You do not have to settle for the first firm you contact. You need to settle for the best firm who will get you the most money for your personal injuries. Contact Colonna Law Firm, LLC today.
You should bring all documents that you have relating to the car wreck or your injuries. You should bring the accident report, crash information sheet, and all medical records. Bring photographs if you took pictures at the scene of the car wreck or if you took pictures of your injuries. If you have already filed a claim then bring all communications with the insurance company and the claim number. You should also bring your own car insurance information.
