New Orleans Magazine just released its annual list of Top Lawyers, naming 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 sixth appearance as a Top Lawyer.  He previously appeared in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2017.

We firmly believe that no one should ever drink and drive.  Yet, Orleans parish residents should be particularly sure to have their designated driver and/or taxi service lined up if they plan to be out on the town because the New Orleans Police Department will be conducting an impaired driving checkpoint within Orleans Parish in the near future.

The checkpoint will be in operation from 9 p.m. on Thursday, September 26, 2019 through Friday, September 27, 2019 at 5 a.m.

During this time, motorists will experience minimal delays at the checkpoint and should have the proper documentation available if requested by officers (proof of vehicle insurance, driver’s license, etc.)

 

 

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 third 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. 

 

 

While we always would discourage anyone from drinking and driving, we are nonetheless encouraging everyone who intends to be out partying this weekend to be especially sure to have sober transportation.  The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office will set up a DWI checkpoint for motorists at an undisclosed location on the east bank of Jefferson Parish on Saturday (May 19), between the hours of 7 p.m. to 1 a.m.  Drivers under the influence will be arrested and prosecuted.
