I was arrested in NOLA 14 years ago and asked Mr. Myers for help with the expungement process. I was concerned about hiring a lawyer in NOLA while living in Florida. But, Mr. Myers proved to be very trustworthy and straightforward. He always answered my questions within a few hours by phone, email or text. He completed work when he said they were going to be done. I wish I got him to handle my original case.
I am very happy with the results that Mr. Myers obtained on my case. From the beginning of the case, Mr. Myers was very confident of the outcome of the case and he definitely obtained those results. He got my case dismissed.
I was visiting from California as first-time New Orleans tourist/party-goer and found myself looking at a drug possession charge (a felony in Louisiana). After bailing out and making it back to Los Angeles, I called several attorneys in New Orleans and found Townsend to be the only straight-shooter of the bunch. Many lawyers told me anything I wanted to hear and it became obvious they were only interested in winning my business, but Towsend gave me honest, consultative, no-BS advice and earned my trust. From the time I retained him until the time he got my case dismissed (roughly 3 months), he was there with me every step of the way and was always available via cell phone and e-mail (excellent service) to break things down in layman's terms. Sometimes good people find themselves in bad situations, so if you ever run into trouble in New Orleans, I can tell you from experience that Townsend has the skills, experience, and resources to help solve your legal problems.
Mr. Myers has the highest of determination, integrity and skills, not to mention an awesome network of contacts to make things happen in the criminal legal system! He is adept and articulate while also being personable. Many in his field lack the class and aplomb he has to finish the job and do so with no worries of it coming back to bite you! Thanks so much for completing what your less than equal peers promised they had completed and for saving my federal career. Need criminal representation? Ask for Townsend Myers!
Townsend Myers didn't just dominate the courtroom. He calmed my family and myself, by explaining the situation in a way in which we could understand and represented us with the utmost respect and confidentiality. He is a calming person in general. Having him next to you is like standing aside a mountain. Thanks again for everything Towns!For
Townsend was the second criminal lawyer I worked with to resolve a traffic issue, and the difference was like night and day. My first attorney was shady, unreliable, impossible to reach and never explained what was going on. Townsend, on the other hand, was always available, showed up at court on time, kept me informed, and did an incredible job cleaning up the mess that had been made attempting to "win" the case by postponing it for two years, which was my first lawyer's plan. When I ran out of money, I was on my own. Fortunately Townsend worked with me on the price, has made me feel confident everything will be taken care of, and made the whole experience a lot less scary. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a criminal lawyer.
