Most people hope to not need them.  But, when they do, they want the good ones on their side.  To this end, New Orleans Magazine publishes an annual list of Top Lawyers; and, it, once again, named Stephen Hébert one of the top attorneys in criminal defense.  The list was prepared by Detroit-based Professional Research Services.

 

Professional Research Services provided this explanation of its methodology: The voting was open to all licensed attorneys in New Orleans. They were asked which attorney, other than themselves, they would recommend in the New Orleans area. Each attorney was allowed to recommend up to three colleagues in each given legal specialty. Once the online nominations were complete, each nominee was carefully evaluated on the basis of the survey results, the legitimacy of their license and their current standing with the State Bar Association of Louisiana. Attorneys who received the highest number of votes in each specialty are reflected in the list.

 

This will be Hébert’s seventh appearance as a Top Lawyer.  He previously appeared in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2020.

We are humbled to announce that Stephen Hébert is, once again, among the Three Best Rated® criminal defense attorneys in New Orleans.

 

Three Best Rated® was created with a simple goal to find the top 3 local businesses, professionals, restaurants, health care providers, etc., in a particular city.  Businesses do not pay for this award.  Rather, only businesses that are verified through a rigorous 50-Point Inspection, which includes everything from checking reputation, history, complaints, ratings, satisfaction, nearness, trust, cost and general excellence, are displayed since customers deserve only the best.

 

This is the fourth consecutive year that Hébert has received this honor.

 

 

Doug Mentes, Esq. consulted Stephen Hébert to write an article recently published in Super Lawyers Magazine.  This article, Do I Have to Consent to a Police Search of My Car, addresses many questions that could arise in the course of routine traffic stop.  Yet, a search of a vehicle is normally a complex, fact-specific legal issue.  To this end, we would encourage anyone who has been arrested as the result of a traffic stop to seek the advice of an experienced criminal defense attorney.  We would also encourage everyone to be polite whenever interacting with any member of law enforcement.
