Practice Areas


If you are charged with a crime or are considering a personal injury claim, contact a lawyer as soon as possible. The experienced Shreveport criminal attorney and personal injury attorney at Steven D. Carby, LLC, understands how important time can be. Our law firm will prepare your case with the understanding that the clock is running.


Shreveport and Bossier City Traffic Violations Attorney and Personal Injury Attorney
Our law firm practices in the following areas:


Criminal law: We assist clients with misdemeanors, felonies, probation revocations and criminal record expungements.

DWI: We assist clients charged with drunk driving, including clients charged in our area who live outside Shreveport-Bossier City.


Personal injury: We represent many clients who have suffered injuries through someone else's negligence and are seeking compensation. We assist clients with car, truck, and motorcycle accidents, slip-and-fall accidents and many other kinds of personal injury claims.


Time Is Critical ยท How We Can Help
Time matters in both personal injury and criminal defense cases. Some deadlines occur quickly in criminal defense cases.


If you are charged with DWI, for example, you must request a hearing within 15 days of your arrest if you want to challenge your license suspension.


In personal injury cases, working with a lawyer right away can help secure witness statements and evidence such as photographs, obtain necessary medical treatment and help with insurance claims.


Time also matters in personal injury cases because Louisiana has an unusually short time frame for filing a personal injury claim. The statute of limitations is one year, meaning you are barred from bringing a claim after that time.


With these timelines in mind, when we assist clients we work to schedule a consultation as quickly as possible. During our first meeting, we evaluate your case and provide you with a roadmap to solve your problem. You may be better able to preserve your rights regarding your case if you obtain legal counsel quickly.


If you are charged with a crime or have suffered an injury, call us today or e-mail us.

DUI / DWI Defense

Shreveport DWI Defense Lawyer
Protecting Your Rights After a DWI Arrest
Driving while intoxicated is a serious charge with the potential for stiff consequences. Hiring an attorney soon after you are charged is important because some deadlines occur early in your case. Our Shreveport DWI defense attorney has nearly 20 years of experience practicing law and will work to protect your rights.
Serious Consequences for DWI Arrest


In Louisiana, a DWI is a misdemeanor charge for a first and second offense. A third offense may result in a felony charge. You can be charged with DWI if you are intoxicated or your driving is impaired by drugs other than alcohol, including prescription drugs.

 If you are under age 21 and you drive with a blood alcohol concentration greater than .02, you could be charged with driving under the influence.


If convicted of DWI, your sentence may involve:

  • Fines
  • Jail time
  • Loss of your license

In some cases, the law provides for a mandatory minimum jail sentence. The consequences may be higher if your blood alcohol content is greater than a certain level. Your charge may also be higher if your case involves an accident.


The effects of a conviction can be long lasting. A conviction can remain on your driving record for more than 10 years. If you have a commercial driver's license, you may lose it.


Shreveport and Bossier City DUI Attorney
Our firm's representation involves scheduling an initial consultation as soon as possible. We will evaluate your case and lay out steps we will take to defend you. Meeting early in your case is important because you have just 15 days after your arrest to request an administrative hearing to challenge your driver's license suspension. We will review your case to determine whether we can challenge evidence in your case to seek a dismissal or a reduced charge.

Our law firm receives referrals and calls from clients who live outside Shreveport-Bossier City but are charged with DWI here. In these cases, a lawyer is especially important because Louisiana DWI laws may be different than the laws in your area.
Call us or e-mail us to schedule an initial consultation.
