Learn Hallye’s areas of practice.

          Hallye Casey Braud was born and raised in New Orleans, LA and is a De La Salle High School graduate. She received a double-major bachelor’s degree in Political Science and History from Louisiana Tech University.

          Hallye attended law school at St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, TX where she was a member of St. Mary’s External Advocacy Teams, a member of the Women’s Law Association, a consistent volunteer with Catholic Charities and Ask-a-lawyer clinics and an intramural volleyball champion.

          As a member of St. Mary’s Negotiation Team, Hallye excelled in national advocacy competitions and the Warsaw Negotiation Round in Warsaw, Poland. She was an active, practicing student attorney with the St. Mary’s Legal and Social Justice Clinic where she handled civil cases for San Antonio residents that were unable to afford legal counsel. Because of her efforts, she was awarded a certificate of pro bono service upon graduating from St. Mary’s for her dedication to volunteering. Hallye is nationally recognized by the Order of the Barristers for her success in advocacy programs and service while in law school.

She has represented clients in over 400 administrative license revocation hearings, argued various motions and has tried over a dozen jury trials. Hallye is known for her criminal defense practice, and routinely handles a variety of criminal charges.  However, clients consistently turn to her for their most complex Driving While Intoxicated cases.  Her strong focus in this area of criminal defense gives her a major competitive advantage over those lawyers who do not take the time to master the intricacies of DWI defense law.

She is also a proud member of the Board of Directors of the Louisiana Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers Association.

An excellent, thorough, and friendly attorney
I was referred to Hallye Braud specifically by another lawyer I had used previously named Benjamin LaBranche. Ben had done such an amazing job for me that I fully trusted he would only recommend someone who would truly help me and I was right. Hallye was thorough, worked quickly, and always maintained good communication with me. Any time I called or emailed she replied to me within a few hours, usually much less. I would not hesitate to use her again. Overall, between herself and Ben, the best experiences I have ever had using an attorney!

The Best Lawyer
Mrs. Hallye is the best lawyer I have ever had. She took my case quickly, and went and found my case at the DA’s office. She went above and beyond to get my case dismissed. She is a hard working attorney. She has excellent communication skills. If you want the best she is the best.

Hallye Braud was a very profession, kind, and understanding attorney. She was straight- forward and explained everything that she was going to do and why. She worked with me out of state and was very accommodating. She worked diligently on my case and won my appeal and the case was dismissed!

Highly recommend
You really want her to represent (or advise) you in any legal issue. She followed my case closely and not only acted as an attorney but as a counselor and she made sure the case was resolved in the most amicable way possible. I recommend her to anybody who is a fan of the best service.

Hallye is a great lawyer
Hallye was wonderful in keeping me informed on my case. It went much longer than expected and she remained committed to seeing it through to a successful conclusion. I could not be happier with the result.

Hallye Braud review
Hallye was amazing! I feel she went above and beyond with our case. She was very available, she never missed a call, text, or email. Not only did she get us the results we wanted with our case, but she held our hands through the entire ordeal and was very calming and reassuring through what was a scary, stressful time. Before hiring her we were afraid and overwhelmed and she swooped right in and took care of every little detail in such a thorough, efficient manner, all while explaining the process to us so we knew exactly what was going on and what to expect. Mrs. Braud really knows her stuff, I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone!

Great Lawyer
The legal system and choosing a lawyer can both be complicated. Hallye made the legal system a simple process and got me out of trouble. Next time I need a lawyer, choosing one will be an easy decision. Thanks Hallye.

Efficient and Problem Solved
Ms. Braud got my case resolved in an efficient manner. She was professional but also down-to-earth. If I were ever in trouble again, I will definitely hire her to be my defense lawyer.

A must hire.
Hallye was referred to me by a close friend. I was in a tight spot and needed an attorney who could fight some serious charges I had against me. I was very pleased with the attention to detail Hallye showed my case. She also always returned my emails and calls and her staff was friendly. Ultimately, my case was dismissed and I’ve hired Hallye again for an expungement.

Hallye was wonderful!
I was looking to fight a traffic ticket and a friend recommended Hallye Braud. From the moment I contacted Hallye she was extremely helpful and professional. Every email was answered, and every phone call returned in a timely manner! Not only is Hallye a strong lawyer, she is also an enjoyable person to be around. I will be recommending Hallye many more times in the future!

My attorney, Hallye Braud, literally could not have done a better job handling my case. She made me feel calm and confident throughout the entire process.

I have and would recommend hiring Hallye Braud to anyone who is in need of representation. Thanks Hallye!
