Practice areas
  1. Speeding and traffic ticket
    55%
    I defend accidents, traffic tickets, and DWI's. While you may received a moving or speeding violation, my goal is to get the charges dismissed or help keep the negative affects off of your driver's license. I practice in Orleans (including New Orleans), Jefferson (inlcluding Metairie, Kenner, and Gretna), St. Bernard (Chalmette), St. John (Edgard AND Laplace), St. Tammany (Chalmette and Slidell City), and St. Charles Parishes.

    14 years, 9,000 cases

  2. Personal injury
    25%
    I represent victims of car, truck, and 18-wheeler accidents, injuries on the job, slip & fall, and burn injury cases.

    14 years, 200 cases

  3. Criminal defense
    20%
    I practice criminal defense, from misdemeanors to 2nd degree murder charges. I am proud to say that few of my clients end up in jail. In fact, most get probation, deferred sentences, or diversion. I am also on the conflict panel with the Orleans Public Defenders Office. I practice in Orleans (including New Orleans), Jefferson (inlcluding Metairie, Kenner, and Gretna), St. Bernard (Chalmette), St. John (Edgard AND Laplace), St. Tammany (Chalmette and Slidell City), and St. Charles Parishes.

Excellent Attorney, Responsive, Gets it done.
John got my case from another attorney who was unable to handle it due to covid and complexities in New Orleans court. John was on it from day one, and took care of the matter very quickly. One thing I especially appreciated was his being responsive, thorough, and going the "extra mile". I highly recommend John Radziewicz.

Past issues
I had some issues from when I was young, Nothing real bad but wanted to clear up. I lived out of state but Mr. Radziewicz was quick and very efficient. He was real reasonably priced! I would highly recommend him.

Excellent experience
My experience with Mr. Radziewicz was entirely positive. He was attentive, timely, and knowledgable. I just moved to the city and took a friend's recommendation to call John and could not be happier with my choice. I will be sure to continue using Crescent City for any legal aid during my time here

Good lawyer in a landlord/tenant issue...
John handled a "slum lord" issue for me a while back. He was calm, empathetic, knowledgeable, and there for my family.

Unsatisfactied
Please do yourself a favor and call another attorney . Mr. Radziewicz was very rude. He interrupted me while I was speaking and I was very quick and sufficient with what I had to say. He also hung up in my face after saying have a great day, lol. He was no help to me in further giving me advice to what I can do. Don’t waste your time with this lawyer if you are a tenant and need help with a landlord . Please find someone else .

I am sorry I was unable to help with your case. As my website explains, my law firm provides services of criminal defense and traffic tickets.

Unhappy Customer
He does not keep you updated! Only calls when its time for payments to be made! The prices for his services are affordable but he still does a horrible job by updating you, comforting you that the case with go by smoothly, and just contacting you period! He never answers when you call and always calls back hours later. I do not recommend him to anyone!
