The Brown Law Firm


  A message from Brandon Brown:

“  Thanks for taking the time to look around my web site.  Being a lawyer is more than a job.  My responsibilities to my clients, the profession and the law motivate and inspire me to handle cases where I can make a difference for an individual.  Any lawyer can file a motion, accompany a person to court or settle an injury case for whatever amount the insurance company wants to offer.


    A good attorney cares.  I care that what I do for my clients today will create the reputation that I will carry with me tomorrow.  I will only accept a case if I feel that I can make a difference for the client.  I have no interest in accepting a fee to merely enter a guilty plea or beg for a quick settlement.  I want to change the outcome for the client by working hard, maintaining an outstanding reputation with the judiciary and other lawyers, and superior dedication to legal education and strategy.


    Don’t just hire a lawyer because you are scared or confused.  You should hire someone because he has educated you about the law and the legal system and clearly explained to you the potential outcomes that he may be able to achieve and how he will achieve those outcomes.


    Sit down with me and let me explain how I can help in your case.”

The Lawyer

William Roper: So, now you give the Devil the benefit of law!

Sir Thomas More: Yes! What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?

William Roper: Yes, I'd cut down every law in England to do that!

Sir Thomas More: Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned 'round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man's laws, not God's! And if you cut them down, and you're just the man to do it, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I'd give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety's sake!

Things you must know before hiring a criminal lawyer


The most expensive lawyer may not be the best lawyer.


Some lawyers charge huge flat fees to handle criminal cases.  Some lawyers seem to set those fees based upon simply what your are charged with and not the individual facts of your case.  At The Brown Law Firm we set fees based upon all of the facts, not just what the next lawyer is charging.  We evaluate the nature of the charge, your individual criminal history (if you have any) and other factors to set a fee that is fair and reasonable.  Make no mistake, good legal representation can be costly.  A good lawyer will spend a great deal of time and effort in investigating your case, preparing pleadings and being with you in Court.  Just as you do not want to choose your lawyer because he or she is the least expensive lawyer, the opposite can also be a mistake.  Sometimes the most expensive lawyer is simply that, the most expensive lawyer.  Don’t make this important decision based on money alone.  Baton Rouge criminal defense lawyer Brandon Brown will meet with you free of charge, discuss your options and set a fee that will be fair and reasonable.


Does your lawyer regularly handle your particular type of criminal case?


Any lawyer can hold him or herself out as a D.W.I. lawyer or a drug lawyer.  You need to ask your lawyer what particular experience he has in dealing with your specific type of case.  For example, many of the defenses to a charge of D.W.I are very technical and would not be evident to just a general practitioner.  ( Ask your lawyer to explain the “partition ratio”.  If he or she wants to represent you in a D.W.I. matter and does not know what that means then chances are they have more to learn.  Don’t be a guinea pig.


Criminal defense lawyer Brandon Brown has handled hundreds of D.W.I. and drug cases.  He is a member of the prestigious National College for D.U.I. and has been certified in Field Sobriety Testing by a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration approved course, just like the police officer who arrested you.  For more information and to find out what the “partition ratio” really is visit our D.W.I. page here.


If you are a first time offender and your crime did not physically harm anyone, you probably are not going to jail.


In Louisiana just about every single misdemeanor and felony criminal offense carries some jail time as a penalty.  Many people go to jail each year.  However, if you are a first offender there are numerous programs that allow your sentence to be deferred and you are placed on probation should you be convicted.  This includes Louisiana Code of Criminal Procedure article 894 and 893.


Each case is different but if you are a first offender who has simply made a mistake this time you are not likely to serve jail time for your offense.  However, the matter can still remain on your record and could have devastating effects on your employment, insurability and personal life if it is not handled correctly.  the right lawyer, like Brandon Brown can help you navigate the maze of rules and laws and leave you in the best possible position when your case is resolved. 



How long has your lawyer been a lawyer?


Unlike doctors, lawyers do not serve any internships or fellowships.  Make sure your lawyer has a level of experience that matches the complexity and seriousness of your case.  Any lawyer with a few years of experience can handle traffic matters or a simple shoplifting charge.  However, you need a lawyer with real criminal defense experience to handle a serious matter.  You don’t want to become a learning experience for a rookie lawyer, or even a veteran lawyer who is just getting into the field of criminal defense work.


Louisiana criminal defense lawyer Brandon Brown has ten years if experience handling criminal cases large and small.  Brandon has successfully defended citizens against D.W.I charges, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Cocaine, Possession with Intent to Distribute Marijuana, Vehicular Homicide, Manslaughter and many other charges. 


Has your lawyer been acting ethically?


Some lawyer have had a history of disciplinary problems yet are allowed to continue practicing law.  We understand that everyone makes mistakes and certainly some lawyers deserve a second chance.  However, you should know if your lawyer has had any issues that may have effected his or her license to practice law.  For more information visit http://www.ladb.org/.


Brandon Brown is proud of his spotless disciplinary record


How many cases is your lawyer currently handling?


It can be expensive to maintain a law practice.  In order to keep the books balanced some lawyers accept a lot of cases.  Brandon Brown strives to keep his case load small by being selective about which cases he chooses to take on and by using technology to the firm’s advantage.  If your lawyer can’t tell you how many cases he or she has open at the moment or if that number is too high for your comfort you may want to consider a lawyer that has time to treat you individually.  Louisiana criminal defense lawyer Brandon Brown is that lawyer.

Worker’s Compensation

Some Quick Information about Louisiana Worker’s Compensation.


If you are injured on the job in Louisiana you may have the right to receive worker’s compensation benefits.  Some important facts to know:


1.    Unlike a personal injury case (like a car wreck) the amount of money that you can get in a worker’s compensation case is usually limited to 66% of your average weekly wage and payment of reasonable and necessary medical treatment.


2.    You are entitled to worker’s compensation payments regardless of fault.  It is not necessary to show that your employer was negligent, or did something wrong in order to receive worker’s compensation benefits.  On the other hand, even if your employer did do something wrong you cannot sue them in regular court, you must file a special claim with the Office of Worker’s Compensation.


3.    You may lose your right to get worker’s compensation payments if you were intoxicated at the time of the accident.  This is why many employer’s will ask for a drug test right after you have been injured.


4.    You have the right to see the appropriate doctor of your choice.  No matter where your boss wants to send you, you have the right to choose your own doctor.  Don’t be bullied into seeing only the company doctor if you do not feel they are looking out for your best interest.  You are the doctor’s patient, no matter who is paying the bill.


5.    You have one year from the date of your injury, or one year from the last date that benefit’s were paid to you, to make a claim for worker’s compensation benefits in Louisiana.


6.    Report your injury to your supervisor immediately.  It may become an issue in your case if you hurt your back at work, decide to keep quiet and “walk it off” and then months later realize the injury was much more serious than you thought.  Better safe than sorry, report any injury right away, even if you feel well enough to keep working.


7.    Your employer has insurance for worker’s compensation claims.  You won’t be taking money out of your employer’s pocket.  The company pays for the insurance whether you make a claim or not.  We understand and admire that many employees hurt on the job like their employers and feel a sense of duty and loyalty to act in the best interest of the company.  However, never put that sense of duty above the well being of yourself and your family.  Good employees get hurt, especially in those jobs where folks work hard and with their hands.  If your employer values your work as much as you do the company, then he or she will be happy to see you make a good recovery with proper medical treatment and wages to hold you over until you are back on the job.
