Slidell Criminal Defense Lawyer
For a tough criminal defense attorney who understands people as well as she understands criminal law, consult with founding lawyer Tammy Nick at Nick Law Firm. An attorney since 1999, Nick draws upon her previous experience as a chemical abuse counselor and addresses the cause of the problem whether it is an addiction or simply a behavior that needs to be modified. Counseling for anger management or chemical dependency is an alternative sought over prison time.
Our criminal defense law firm handles cases involving impaired driving and DWI, drug offenses, probation and parole violations, assault and battery, and domestic violence, juvenile crimes, robbery, theft, and traffic violations. We counsel clients in domestic violence cases involving restraining orders and protective orders. Criminal defense lawyer Tammy Nick is licensed in all state and federal courts throughout Louisiana.
If you have been charged with DWI or DUI, our law firm will represent you at your administrative hearing regarding your driver's license, and we will remain at your side to fight your DWI charges at all subsequent criminal court appearances.
Our law firm provides tough and compassionate criminal defense of clients charged with drug offenses, including possession, distribution, trafficking, and manufacturing of narcotics.
We offer jail consultations to our clients, and we handle expungements.
Parole and Probation
Attorney Tammy Nick has a degree in psychology to complement her law degree, bringing added value to defendants in probation violation and parole violation cases who want to get professional help but who have not been able to do so. Part of our plea bargain strategy is getting our clients into the appropriate counseling in lieu of jail time. We believe this approach is an important step toward reducing our clients' chances of becoming or remaining a repeat criminal offender. We believe in second chances.
We serve clients in St. Tammany Parish, Orleans Parish, Jefferson Parish, Lafourche Parish, Tangipahoa Parish, St. Bernard Parish, East Baton Rouge Parish, Plaquemines Parish, and Washington Parish with discounts available to military personnel.
