5.0 stars 20 totalReview Wilson LaFaurie
I just concluded my case with Mr. Lafaurie. It was a long battle, but I'm glad that I had him as my attorney the entire time. In my business as a broker, I know the ins and outs, the fundamentals as well as the advance subject matter or techniques in my business. However, when I was arrested by my company (which will remain nameless) for filing fraudulent client vouchers, I had no understanding of the criminal justice system. It felt like people, police and even judges were accusing me of things based on unreliable BS. Once I scheduled a meeting with a half dozen criminal defense lawyers, I quickly learned the Mr. Lafaurie was the best in his field. He was the only attorney that advised me to testify in the grand jury and he spent 2 days preparing me and advising me on a subject matter that was foreign to me. When you find yourself in my situation, you will 100% need someone like this attorney. He made it look easy. Great job, I owe you much more than what I paid you for.
I have known Mr. LaFaruie for over 15 years. I can speak to his work ethic when I was on the opposite side of Mr. LaFaurie as a prosecutor, he was diligent, hard working and a pit bull in getting his clients the result they were looking for. As a colleague, he is an attorney I would be proud to work with. I can say to any client who engages Mr. Lafaurie's services, you will be pleased and he will be giving you one of the best shots at getting the results you are looking for.

This lawyer is probably the most honest, straightforward and direct attorney you will come accross. My family hired him for a DWI case for my brother. He broke the entire case down step by step for us, provided great consultation before even discussing money. He is extremely knowledgeable and steller at what he does. He got our case dismissed and we are soooo thankful! Hire him! He is great and we will always recommend him.

Can't explain sitting on trial with everything looking bad against you. If it was not for Barry Kellum giving me mr lafauries cell phone I know I would be up state doing a 10 bid. It's funny that they had all of the evidence and I had a lawyer that I never heard of but damn wTching him on trial is sic, he loves knowing that he's better then them. I owe God---Barry an Mr Lafaurie my freedom.

My wife dedicated 11 years to Chase Bank and because an audit showed money missing the Bank manager decided to target my wife to save herself and her employment. instead of telling the truth about my wife the mgr. told the investigators a lie about something my wife told her in confidence.
An arrest was made for a C felony. My family had no choice but to take out a loan to hire Mr. LaFaurie, I thank God that we did that!!! Now we are sueing Chase, the bank manager and the NYPD for all they have put us through.
The case against her was manufactured! Mr. LaFaurie took the time but more importantly he understood how they think and he saw the gapping problems with there NONSENSE.
Mr. Lafaurie is rather cold, rather no nonsense, rather direct BUT i would prefer him over someone who sugarcoats a situation just to get paid. My only concern was that he was expensive but he told us the whole price up front--no surprises. WE WILL ALWAYS USE HIM IN THE FUTURE.

Mr. Lafaurie was the first lawyer we had contacted when we were searching for an attorney that we could trust and who would be honest, and deliver what was promised. We did our research and in the end chose Mr. Lafaurie. We didn't even search further after speaking with him because he knew exactly what he was talking about. My husband was arrested for a dwi and we were new to the "system". Mr. Lafaurie just got our case dismissed and our lives are now back to normal. This ordeal was definitely not easy and we were always filled with anxiety and uncertainties. He is definitely a no nonsense type lawyer, that gets straight to the point. He did exactly what he promised and we are extremely grateful. This is exactly why so many people, including ourselves hire him. He is worth every penny! Thanks and God Bless!

I called several lawyers and phone interviewed them prior to hiring. When I called Wilson LaFaurie he was seemed extremely knowledgable. Talking to him was very comforting - like everything will be okay, and he will work his hardest to fight my case. However, I paid Wilson LaFaurie a large sum of money and in the end his work was not worth a single penny. He was very hard to contact, he never answered the phone or returned calls. In order to reach him I would have to send a text and he would only respond back via text. This was very inconvenient because I could never get all of my questions answered and was left in the dark about my case.
One day I showed up to court on the date listed on my paper and the judge yelled at me saying that I was suppose to be submitting paperwork that day. Paperwork that my lawyer never told me about; I was completely unaware of this. The court clerk then said, "I hope you didn't pay a lawyer for your case, he's suppose to be submitting the paperwork not you." I then called my lawyer…no answer. So, I texted him and his response was completely in CAPS with exclamation marks saying. "THIS IS NOT MY JOB, YOU OBVIOUSLY DIDN'T DO YOUR PART!" -Well excuse me, because I had done everything I was ordered to do from both my lawyer and the court.
He is not on top of work, when something goes wrong in your case he will blame you. He didn't get my charges lowered at all. He didn't show up to all my court cases - he would send fill in lawyers who knew nothing about my case. When I got my final judgement from the court I tried to reach him with further questions and he always responded with, "Can't help you with that, sorry."
Seriously, don't waste your money on him. He seems like an amazing lawyer at first. If I had to do it all over again I would probably still pick him out of the other 10 other lawyers I interviewed. He seems very knowledgable and will act like he really cares about you. However, it is an act. You are much better going with your court appointed lawyer than him any day. Hiring him was my biggest mistake.

My wife found Attorney LaFaurie on this website and after some preliminary due diligence we decided to retain him. Initially I was impressed by this obvious experience and enthusiasm. More importantly he understood the legal and professional risks I was facing and shared my the desire for the best possible outcome. From inception my wife and I were particularly impressed with his honest and transparent approach to describing how we can achieve the optimal outcome and his help clearly outline the tough choices and decisions required to get us there. He allowed us to make informed decisions throughout the process and his advice was complete, accurate and clearly experienced. Further it should be noted that if required Attorney LaFaurie is an excellent trial lawyer and we were able to get the exact outcome we desired. Should you need to go to Trial or PreTrial hearing I am confident that you will find yourself with extremely capable representation. I am confident that should you choose Mr LaFaurie to represent you, you will not be disappointed. I believe he will continue to exceed his client expectation as he did mine. Good Luck.

I found Mr. Wilson on this website and i gave him a call, he sounded very pleasant on the phone. when we met he was more interested in winning my case than making quick money. He assured me he will do anything in his power to help me. Anytime i had a question, he always take this time to explain without any annoyance no matter how many times. when you use Mr, Wilson you will not be disappointed.

Wilson LaFaurie is an amazing lawyer. He made a TERRIBLE experience with going through a pre trial conferences and trying to defend my name, as easy and straight forward as possible. His ability to analyze a situation and use his many years of the judicial system, we were able to get the results that he said we would; WIN. Very personable and will work with you. He educates you on all possible options and outcomes. I HIGHLY recommend him to get the results you want as quickly as possible.
