How We Can Help

  • Facing a criminal charge is a serious matter. You require an aggressive defense. Even a misdemeanor can have a devastating effect upon your life. In my practice, there is no such thing as a simple criminal matter.

  • We will provide you with an initial consultation to see if and how I can serve your interests. Legal cases (and even just the language) can be complicated and intimidating. I will guide you through every step of your case and make sure you understand exactly what is going on.  I will advise you on every decision that needs to be made.


  • Listening to the client and building a strong legal defense based on their unique situation is an important aspect of a highly successful case. We create a defense to suit your situation, rather than try to fit your case into a pre-formed plan that might not be best for you. As a former prosecutor, Louis has an in-depth understanding of both sides of the legal system and can advise you as to how things may unfold, as well as what might happen in the courtroom.


  • Having a criminal charge is a terrible experience.  Campola Law understands how confused and anxious you might be feeling, and we are here to assure you that we will protect your rights. A criminal charge is far too serious to leave to chance. You need a seasoned advocate like Louis to fight on your behalf and get you a fair result.


  • Even though we may be able to avoid it, we prepare your case as if it is going to trial. This puts prosecutors on notice that we mean business.  I will fight to make sure that you get the best possible outcome and that you receive fair treatment from the judicial system.

  • Many criminal cases can be resolved through negotiations between a seasoned criminal defense lawyer and a reasonable prosecutor. But not all cases can, or should, be resolved in that manner. Experience is the difference. Knowing when an offer should be accepted - or rejected - is critical to achieving the best possible result. Experience in pre-trial motions practice, suppression hearings, and jury trials is important to the effective defense of a person charged with having committed a criminal act.  Louis has extensive experience in all aspects of criminal law, which include over hundreds of misdemeanor and felony trials, and over 30 jury trials, including 2 juries with a sentence of life on each while a prosecutor.
