OVERVIEW

About Townsend Myers
NOLA Criminal Law is me...

...Townsend Myers.

I am 1989 graduate of the University of South Carolina Honors College, magna cum laude, and a 1993 graduate of the University of Chicago Law School. While in law school, I completed a clinical education program with a concentration in criminal law. After graduation I began my career as an assistant public defender with the Cook County Public Defender s Office in Chicago. I have been a criminal lawyer, and only a criminal lawyer, ever since.

In 1996, I returned to New Orleans, establishing my professional career with the Orleans Parish Public Defender's Office. In early 1998, I established NOLA Criminal Law, because I sensed there was a need for a lawyer like me - a lawyer who was willing to try to do things a little bit differently than most. What I mean is this: sometimes lawyers don't make any sense. Sometimes clients feel like their lawyer doesn't understand them or their problems. In criminal law especially, effective communication is HUGE. If your lawyer doesn't understand your problem, your lawyer can't help you solve it.

NOLA Criminal Law exists because I want to understand your problem. It exists because I am interested in being a lawyer without always having to act like a lawyer (I do, however, dress like a lawyer). I promise that I will act like a regular person, who happens also to be a good lawyer.

NOLA Criminal Law also exists because I want to help solve your problem. My goal is to provide a top-notch professional service to all of my clients, while still maintaining a level of personal dedication to each individual client. I promise that your criminal problem, whatever it is, will get the attention it deserves, and hopefully the result you expect.

NOLA Criminal Law also exists because it is my experience that when you have a criminal problem, you need a criminal lawyer. Over the course of my career, I have handled well over four thousand felony criminal cases, hundreds of DWI case, and countless misdemeanor and traffic cases. I promise you the fruits of that experience when I show up in court to handle your case.
