About The Balfour Emonet

At Balfour Emonet, we are a Baton Rouge-based practice representing clients in both civil and criminal matters. By taking a personal, hands-on approach to working with the individuals and families we serve, we build cases that focus on the unique goals of each person who comes through our doors.

Although there are plenty of firms out there handling similar cases, we believe strongly in the results our quality services can achieve.

Focused On Helping Real People Resolve Real Legal Issues

At Balfour Emonet, we believe in treating our clients like friends, neighbors and members of our families. Below are just a few of the values and benefits we believe help us provide the highest-quality legal services day in and day out:

  • At home in the courtroom: As a litigation firm, we know what it takes to carry out a winning litigation strategy — namely, the resources and experience to handle even the most complex criminal and civil cases. Instead of helping clients offer a plea, we are well-equipped to take cases as far as they need to go.
  • Firmly focused on you: As a small practice, we believe in building strong, professional relationships with our clients. When you work with us, you have our full attention. It is our hope that you won't need our services a second time, but if you do, we will be here, ready to provide the high-quality representation you expect.
  • Building client confidence: Facing a criminal or civil matter is intimidating for most people. That is why we look to alleviate stress and help you feel confident in the support, counsel and representation we provide. Armed with more than 20 years of experience and a track record of success, we are ready to protect your interests.
