Things we can do for you
Colonna Law Firm can offer you experienced representation in the following practice areas:
- 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 Also, with outdated technology their efficiency is low.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.
