Criminal Defense

We defend people, businesses and institutions facing a range of criminal charges:

We represent minors in juvenile court and adults in both state and federal criminal court. We have substantial experience with property crimes (such as theft and burglary), crimes of violence (such as homicide, weapons offenses and robbery), white collar crimes (such as insider trading and antitrust), immigration crimes and environmental crimes/regulatory matters. We can also help you seek an expungement, which can clear certain offenses off of your permanent record. Additionally, our firm helps with bail and bond issues.

Professional License Defense

When a criminal charge impacts a client's professional license, our attorneys are available to provide defense services in the administrative hearing process. Most frequently, we represent health care professionals (doctors, pharmacists, dentists and others) whose good standing is threatened by disciplinary action, suspension or license revocation.

Estate Planning, Probate and Elder Law

Our estate planning and probate practice is led by an attorney who is board-certified in these areas by the Louisiana Board of Legal Specialization. We write wills and trusts and advance health care directives as part of estate planning. We guide estate representatives through the probate and succession process, and we represent either the estate or challengers to the will in estate litigation. Our firm also handles elder law issues for aging clients and their families.

Special Needs Trusts

We recognize that planning for a special needs child or adult is a priority of many people. At Lorenzi & Barnatt, L.L.P., we provide competent and compassionate assistance in creating a special needs trust that meets the needs of your loved one while maintaining his or her eligibility for government assistance.

Business Organizations

We offer efficient guidance through the process of forming and registering a Louisiana business. Early advice about the best type of business organization can prevent serious problems down the road. We spend the necessary time with our business clients to make sure we understand all their business goals, so that we can propose an appropriate organizational structure. We have extensive experience in the creation of nonprofit entities and their applications for tax exemption as 501(c)(3) organizations.

Agricultural Law

We give legal guidance on agricultural law to farmers and ranchers. We help with business and government transactions, with civil legal disputes over land boundaries, and with criminal investigations by the Department of Environmental Quality, Department of Agriculture and other government agencies.
