    Since the beginning of my career, 100% of my practice has been devoted to defending clients facing criminal charges.

My name is E Alexander Laird ("Alex") and I exclusively practice criminal defense in the Baton Rouge and surrounding areas. I know first hand the fear and anxiety one feels facing criminal charges. That is why I chose this profession.

I do everything in my power to help each and every one of my clients overcome their criminal issue and come out a better person afterwards.

I know how important it is for clients to have an attorney that truly cares about them, not only for the outcome of their case but also for their overall sense of well-being while the case is pending. I give all of my clients my personal cell phone number and make myself extremely accessible. No question or concern is too small to call or text about. My motto is that clients should be treated like friends and family, not just case files

It’s my promise to fight hard for each and every client to get the best outcome possible, using every tool at my disposal.

If you are reading this and you or a loved one are facing criminal charges, please don’t hesitate to give me a call for a free consultation, or visit my website and read more about me.

Attorney Laird really cares
I found attorney Laird through the internet and read his positive reviews. My experience was similarly outstanding to those posted. He asks insightful questions, provides an honest evaluation of the situation, and explains options with clarity. He responded to all questions the same day they were asked. He truly cares about his clients. Our lives could be very different today if not for his knowledge, skill and guidance. I recommend E. Alex Laird without reservation.

Mr. Laird guided me through my expungement proceeding perfectly. Everything went exactly as he told me it would. He kept me up to date through each step. And now, thanks to his help, I have a clean record!!!!

Thank you!!!
In October, I was in an accident that lead to a drug possession charge. Being a 21 year old in my last year at LSU who has never been in trouble, I knew I needed the help of a great attorney. After reading countless reviews of Baton Rouge attorneys, I found Mr. Laird’s website and immediately gave him a call. He told me not to worry and that he’d take care of it. I decided to hire him and do not have a single regret. He stuck to his word and took care of everything for me including attending my court date for me because of finals and staying in contact to keep me reassured. He got my case dismissed and insured a drug charge would not affect my future. Thank you so much Alex, I appreciate all your hard work!

Domestic abuse case
I hired Alex when I was arrested. He represented me in a domestic abuse case. He did an outstanding job as a lawyer, he answered me whenever I called or texted. After just 2 court appearances he got my case dropped from a felony charge to a misdemeanor with no probation or fines. The guy truly cares about his clients and I would 100% recommend him to anyone looking to clear their name.

Fantastic Lawyer!
Alex Laird was fair, accommodating, and reliable. My partner and I were arrested together and Alex agreed to handle our case jointly. He kept us well-informed about the process, so there were never any surprises. We didn’t have to stress about it or worry about the details. With Alex’s guidance, our case was dismissed. Alex also helped us get our record expunged.

Felony Posession of Firearm & Controlled Substance
I was arrested for possession of almost 500 Xanax pills and a pistol in my front console. The Sheriff's and SWAT searched my vehicle in the parking lot of a closed store late at night. That's the situation I was up against. I called a few attorneys and hired Alex. He walked me through the process each step of the way, coached me on what to do between court dates, and spoke with the Prosecutor personally on my behalf. Alex turned a definite prison sentence into 1 year probation, in which upon completion I will not be a Felon. I couldn't be more greatful for his hard work and dedication to my case.

A True Blessing
Alex has it all. He's compassionate for his clients. He's communicative. He's charismatic and persuasive in court. I was at a low point in my life and he helped me through it to come out a better man. God Bless Alex Laird.

Awesome job
We had hired Alex for my brother's case. We had 2 misdemeanors and a felony. Alex got the felony dismissed and some restitution paid for the misdemeanors. Alex talked to us and supported us like family. He was with us every step of the way and made us feel relieved. I would definitely recommend him. He exceeded our expectations above and beyond.
