Client Reviews
K. B. March 23, 2022
Felony Possession of Firearm & Controlled Substance I was arrested for possession of almost 500 Xanax pills and a pistol in my front console. The Sheriff's and SWAT searched my vehicle in the parking lot of a closed store late at night. That's the situation I was up against. I called a few attorneys and hired Alex. He walked me through the process each step of the way, coached me on what to do between court dates, and spoke with the Prosecutor personally on my behalf. Alex turned a definite prison sentence into 1 year probation, in which upon completion I will not be a Felon. I couldn't be more greatful for his hard work and dedication to my case.

My name is Alex Laird and I exclusively practice criminal defense in the Baton Rouge and surrounding areas. I know first hand the fear and anxiety one feels facing criminal charges. That is why I chose this profession.

I do everything in my power to help each and every one of my clients overcome their criminal issue and come out a better person afterwards.

I know how important it is for clients to have an attorney that truly cares about them, not only for the outcome of their case but also for their overall sense of well-being while the case is pending. I give all of my clients my personal cell phone number and make myself extremely accessible. No question or concern is too small to call or text about. My motto is that clients should be treated like friends and family, not just case files

It’s my promise to fight hard for each and every client to get the best outcome possible, using every tool at my disposal.

If you are reading this and you or a loved one are facing criminal charges, please don’t hesitate to give me a call for a free consultation, or visit my website and read more about me.
