If you have been arrested or charged with a crime at the federal, state, municipal, or traffic level you need a criminal defense lawyer with experience who will fight for your rights.

When should you hire a criminal defense lawyer?

A successful criminal defense begins as close as possible to the time of arrest. The battle is not only to avoid fines or incarceration or to get charges reduced or dismissed -- it’s also to keep your record as free as possible from information that can harm your future: like getting a job, or pursuing a higher education.

Do not harm your criminal case by discussing anything with the authorities without the protection of a criminal defense attorney by your side. It is in your best interests to hire a criminal defense lawyer to represent you as soon as possible. If you believe that you may be charged with a crime, get a lawyer! Don’t wait for the formal arrest.

What happens when you are arrested and jailed?

When you are arrested, you are taken to the “intake area.” There, you are searched, booked, fingerprinted, given a medical check, issued a standardized uniform (color-coded, usually by security risk), and then placed in a cell. All your personal items are inventoried and held for you; they are returned when you are released.

That cell can be with the “general population,” or it can be in a special area, as the authorities deem fit. This special area reserved for public officials, police officers, celebrities, and the like. They are created to make it easier for the officials to keep the peace, minimizing the risk to everyone involved - including the jailers. Another type of “special area” is the segregated area where people who have been arrested but have yet to appear before a judge are held; for example, those who have been picked up on an outstanding warrant.

Once you have been assigned to a cell, you stay in that cell most of the time. You will get a limited amount of exercise time, and there are set hours of visitation for family as well as your attorney.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is a serious issue that affects marital and non-marital relationships alike.  Spouses, girlfriends, boyfriends, domestic partners, co-habitating   partners, and children may all potentially be victims of acts of domestic violence.  Whether you are a victim or have been accused of domestic violence, you need the proper legal representation to assist you in such a difficult time.  Although most domestic abuse is directed toward women, anyone may be the victim of these violent acts whether the abuse is physical, mental or emotional.  In addition, both civil and criminal courses of action may be sought in domestic violence cases.

If you have been accused of domestic violence, you need an attorney who will rigorously defend your case by examining all the facts.   Legal remedies such as restraining orders or protective orders may be sought against you and an attorney will be able to help you try to get your life back to normal in these situations.   Protective orders are directed by a court and prohibit a party, usually the accused, from interacting with the person who has sought the protective order.   The main objective of these court orders is to keep further violence from taking place against the victim.  Protective orders and restraining orders are difficult to cope with because they will likely restrict your access to your home and/or children. You need legal representation to help you get your life back in some order.

To properly defend someone accused of domestic violence, you need an attorney who can examine all the evidence to determine whether it is sufficient or not to support the charges made, or to have the case dismissed or have the charges reduced.   A variety of defenses may be used and defenses vary on a case by case basis. The facts relating to the case may include self defense or a showing of evidence not sufficient to support the claim, and so on.

If you have been the victim of domestic violence, you know how difficult a time it can be both physically and emotionally to cope with your situation.  To help you achieve the appropriate legal protection, you need an attorney who can take the steps necessary for you to obtain a protective order designed to provide you and/or your child the safety you need while the case is being resolved.  Typically, a protective order is a form of relief available after a victim first obtains a temporary restraining order against whoever perpetrated the violence.  While both orders are intended to protect a domestic violence victim from their wrongdoer it is a difficult situation.  This order can include prohibiting the defendant from coming into contact with the victim; a temporary restraining order is more of an emergency remedy available to the victim to seek the protection they need before a formal hearing.  In other words, a temporary restraining order is just what it says, a temporary remedy that can be sought before a more long lasting prohibition on contact can be sought through a protective order.

Remember, you may be a victim of domestic violence even if no physical harm was suffered. You have legal remedies for domestic violence whether you were mentally, emotionally, or physically harmed.  Also, when charges of domestic violence lead to dissolution of a marriage or other relationship, a victim may sense a feeling of relief but often times the accused person will become even more upset following the dissolution.  This means you need an attorney who has your best legal interest in mind for the current situation as well as in anticipating what protective legal measures may be necessary to protect you and/or your child.  In addition to the protective orders already mentioned, seeking further relief through injunctions may help at a time following the breakup.  Injunctions are court orders designed to prevent certain occurrences from happening, such as enjoining a former spouse from coming near your child or home, and are a much more serious remedy than a protective order. Keep you and your family safe.

Sex Crimes

Whether you have been the victim of a sexual crime or you have been accused of one in Louisiana, you have certain legal rights to which you are entitled. Centrally located in the heart of downtown New Orleans, the law office of Bloom Legal is ideally situated to help clients on both sides of a sexual crime dispute. We handle all types of sexual crimes, whether in state and federal courts, and whether the victims are children or adults.  Call Bloom Legal today at 504.599.9997 for a free consultation on how we can help defend your rights in your sexual crime case.

At Bloom Legal, we can handle all types of sexual crimes throughout Louisiana. The types of crimes that we are able to address include, but are not limited to:

  • Rape
  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual battery
  • Sexual harassment
  • Molestation
  • Stalking
  • Internet crimes
  • Child pornography/exploitation
  • Sex trafficking
  • Luring or enticing a child
  • Prostitution
  • Solicitation
  • Incest
  • Unlawful sexual activity
  • Lewd or lascivious acts or contact
  • Voyeurism


Many of these crimes can victimize either adults or children.

If you have been the victim of any of these crimes or any other type of sexual crime, the legal team at Bloom Legal understands your trauma and will give you the sympathetic, personalized legal help that you need during this difficult time. We will work to keep you safe by pursuing temporary restraining orders and injunctions against your wrongdoer, both of which are protective measures available to victims of crimes designed to keep their assailant or wrongdoer a safe distance away. Additionally, we will help you seek damages and awards from your assailant through civil actions, which will allow you to sue for the loss of your livelihood and happiness during this traumatic time. Bloom Legal's attorneys will also assist you and criminal investigators in the criminal investigation against your wrongdoer.

If you have been accused of a sexual crime, you also have rights
Any person accused of or charged with a crime in the United States has certain constitutionally guaranteed legal rights, which include the right to competent legal representation and the right to a fair trial. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your charge or accusation, from the time that you hire us, New Orleans' Bloom Legal will work to ensure that your rights are met.

Sexual crimes typically have two main consequences. The first is the criminal penalties including time spent imprisoned and a lifetime spent on the sex offender registry. The second consequence is the social stigma associated with these crimes, which may lead to job loss, divorce, and estrangement from friends and family. If you have been accused of a sexual crime, the lawyers at Bloom Legal can work to minimize the effects of this second consequence through early intervention and active involvement.

As we progress with your defense, the sexual crime lawyers at Bloom Legal will use several strategies to determine whether prosecutors have a case against you. Several questions we will ask and pursue include:

  • Did the alleged victim create a false charge in order to cover up consensual sexual activities that would be damaging to that person's reputation or family?
  • Did the alleged victim create a false charge out of retribution against you?
  • Particularly if the alleged victim is a child, did the tactics of parents, teachers, or investigators create an instance of false memory?
  • Did the police use appropriate methods of search and seizure, if seizing computer files or other pieces of property? If not, that evidence will be inadmissible in court.


The criminal defense attorneys at Bloom Legal are available for sexual crime cases across Louisiana and the New Orleans-Metairie-Kenner metropolitan area. Our clients include locals, tourists, and college students who need help navigating the law or defending themselves. If you have been arrested or assaulted in Orleans, Jefferson, St. Bernard, St. Tammany, St. John the Baptist, St. Charles, or any other Parishes in Louisiana, contact New Orleans' Bloom Legal and work to keep yourself free and safe.

If you are accused of a sex crime, Bloom Legal will work to minimize the negative consequences of the crime. If you are the victim of a sex crime, Bloom Legal is here to keep you safe and bring your wrongdoer to justice. What ever your issue, if you need a skilled and knowledgeable sexual crimes lawyer in Louisiana, contact New Orleans' Bloom Legal at 504.599.9997.
