Important Tips For Facing Criminal Charges

There’s a well-known statistic that nearly all criminal cases settle through plea bargaining. However, if you are innocent, it is important to retain a criminal lawyer to discuss the strengths & weaknesses of your case before you accept a plea bargain. The worst thing you can do is to plead guilty for something that you didn’t do.

For anyone who is looking for AMAZING people to represent you, that will literally do anything and everything they can for you to receive the best outcome, then these are the people you want, I PROMISE you that. They literally made miracles happen on my multiple cases. Alan from day one made me promise him that I would do everything I could to better my life.

The Peyrouton Law firm is the place to go to if you need great representation. Extremely knowledgeable, honest and prompt. Alan and Kevin got our family through a very difficult and emotional matter quickly and with ease. The office was highly professional, responsive and compassionate. They kept us informed and advised us wisely throughout the entire process. I highly recommend this firm. Karen & Ed E

They worked intensive hours, they hired experts and finally after a very tough journey we saw the very best results anybody could ask for. We met several times, we stayed in constant communication with Alan, we cried together, the whole process was like we were a family that bonded in the very worse time. The knowledge, the professionalism, the perseverance, the compassion that Alan and his Firm demonstrated at all times should be made public for any family that might be put in the same situation as we were. We praise the Lord to have found this Firm and will forever be thankful to Alan for his commitment to our family and the most wonderful results he was able to accomplish. He gave us our son back and his Freedom which is priceless. We recommend Alan and the Firm as the very best of Criminal Defense Lawyers

Ana G.

From the start he was very caring and understanding of our situation. He helped us with everything, explained everything and was there through every step. He is a true blessing. We went from the impossible to my boyfriend coming out, with no trial and only time served. I recommend him to everyone because he really took a hard case and gave us the best outcome. He is so patient and was so dedicated to this case. He spent all his time working on this and gave us the best outcome, from facing 60yrs to only getting out on time served (11months). I can’t imagine what would’ve happened if it wasn’t for Alan.
