I was able to find Stephen here on the internet and even though my incident happened on a holiday weekend he was able to answer my call and see my almost immediately. Because I was an out of state client for him, I was pressed for time and again he was available and met all of my needs.
Now on to the real reason I called him. He handled all of my needs with professionalism and kept me informed both out of town and ahead of time. He was able to fully prepare me for any issues that might arise when I needed to travel back into town, which really helped me keep things together and not have to waste any time!
In the end, through his abilities and help we were able to get through a very frightening time for me. Although I am still not out of the woods, he is still available for me and has answered every one of my calls and gave me solid advice that helps me to stay focused to see the end around the corner. If I ever have another incident in the State of Louisiana, I will be calling no one other than Stephen!
I was in New Orleans for a bachelor party/Mardi Gras and was arrested for Public Intoxication and Obstructing a Public Place. After spending a Friday night in jail, I realized I had a court date set for the following Thursday (the whole city shuts down for Mardi Gras and nothing is open). I had a flight out on Monday and there was no way I was going to be able to stay that long. I called Mr. Herbert Saturday morning and he picked up. He went out of his way to set up a meeting with me before I left (we met at his office at 8am on SUNDAY MORNING!). He gave me the run through of my case and he told me he would make the first appearance for me. I flew out as planned.
I spoke with Mr. Herbert a few more times throughout the week and made clear to him that I needed this case to be dismissed as fast as possible (I have some pending employment applications and they are contingent upon no convictions or ongoing charges). He said he understood. Come Thursday morning, Mr. Herbert texted me saying case was dismissed and he got a third of my bond money back! Everything was closed just as fast as it started.
I would recommend Mr. Herbert for any criminal issues that arise. He took care of my issue with an incredible speed and efficacy. I can not imagine a better outcome to an unfortunate set of events. He knows what he is doing and he was able to get the case dismissed on what I can only imagine is the busiest day of the year (I can only imagine how many people have to show up for appearances on the first court date after Mardi Gras). He is without a doubt a life saver.
I came down over a weekend for a wedding and was arrested friday night. I got out the same night but was scheduled with a court appointment on Monday. I was supposed to fly out Sunday, so I needed help.
Stephen was not the first attorney I called, He was the first one to answer his phone though. He answered his phone at 7pm on saturday to answer my questions free of charge.
He came in to his office at 7am on a SUNDAY to sign paperwork so I could catch my flight at 11am.
He gave me a discount on his service charge since my friend had been charged as well and we both agreed to be represented by him.
He handled our case for us so we could go home and continue on with our lives. He followed up on Tuesday, the day after court, to let us know that all was dismissed and we could follow up with him in 6 months for an expungement.
Best service I ever had.
Stephen was very responsive and throughout the whole process it felt like he had my best interests at heart. Stephen walked me through the process and answered all questions, no matter how trivial, any time of day or night and even on weekends. Stephen was invaluable in helping me through this very difficult time.
I was extremely happy with my experience with Stephen. He is a great attorney and I highly recommend him if his services are needed. You can tell he genuinely enjoys his career which shows in the courtroom and was blatant during my communication with him. If you are in need of a great attorney - call Stephen!
Stephen was absolutely fantastic. I had reached out to Stephen for a hearing for the following day as I was from out of town. Stephen met with me within a few hours from when I called him (on a Sunday) and told me he would get everything taken care of. Stephen represented me during our preliminary hearing and was able to get all of the charges dismissed. I would highly recommend Stephen as he made my life much easier.
Stephen handled my daughter's DUI case quickly, expertly and to a much better than expected result. I retained Stephen "long distance" via a referral from a local family friend, and he quickly put my professional concerns (I am a lawyer) to rest, and gave my daughter expert advice on rehabilitative activities to engage in pre-hearing, that made a big difference in the way her case was perceived and dealt with by the court. He also quoted me a set fee (subject of course to any unforeseen contingencies) which I found very reasonable and within which he was able to stay. I look forward to meeting him and thanking him in person when I am next in New Orleans.
A friend had highly recommended Mr. Hebert and after some research, I scheduled a consultation. He saw me the next day and provided excellent information prior to any contract being signed - I especially appreciated his candor and extensive local knowledge. There are no hidden fees or costs and his competitive fee was well worth it. He was on top of this case at all times and I always felt like I was talking to a friend that always had my best interests at heart. At court, he was above board and I felt he was easily the best lawyer in the room. He expertly handled this case and recommend Stephen to anyone in need without hesitation.
Attorney Herbet was the only lawyer who responded out of a call to a dozen. He cares about holding high the standards of what it means to be a lawyer and the fact that people are generally calling you in the middle of the night with a problem they want you to solve. I liken him to an emergency room doc who was there on call and knew what to do under less than ideal circumstances. He had an in-depth knowledge about the law and the procedure; he simply knew the system inside and out. He also had a deep understanding of the culture and environment of the court system and all the relevant players. He is the definition of a local guy as I learned, having been born, bred, educated and experienced in LA - absolutely necessary characteristics when needing legal consultation in New Orleans. He tempered that knowledge with compassion - a quality lacking in most lawyers I've worked with. He was responsive to every call and took very serious his responsibilities related to his work. Lastly, the legal fee he quoted was the legal fee he charged. Unlike some lawyers I've worked with in the past, Stephen kept his word and never tried to charge more later -- his integrity is unquestionable. I could not have gotten a better person in any way to seek guidance from, especially with a random phone call. It was hitting the legal lottery. Am I'm not exaggerating a single bit. I would reccomend him without hesitation to anyone needing a competent and caring lawyer to handle any legal matter.
