St. Bernard Parish is located southeast of the New Orleans area and has a population of more than 35,000 people. The 34th Judicial District is the court presiding over cases involving locals to the area as well as visitors who are accused of a crime or suffer an injury within the St. Bernard Parish area.
How Will My Case Be Resolved in St. Bernard Parish?
If you face criminal charges the prosecutor will take action against you. First you will be arraigned and then face trial in the court in the jurisdiction where the alleged offense took place. If you do not want your case to go to trial you can enter a plea bargain. A New Orleans criminal defense attorney at Bloom Legal can help you negotiate a plea or defend yourself against allegations of criminal wrongdoing.
If you have been injured, you must file a personal injury or wrongful death claim in the court where the incident that caused the injury occurred, or in the court of the jurisdiction where the defendant lives.
You can settle your case outside of court or a jury in the St. Bernard Parish area will decide the outcome of your claim. To prevail in a court trial you must prove the defendant breached a legal duty and caused you harm. An experienced attorney can represent you during settlement negotiations with an insurer or in a civil court trial in St. Bernard Parish.
