French Quarter Personal Injury Attorneys

The French Quarter, also known as the Vieux Carré, is the oldest neighborhood in the city of New Orleans. This neighborhood is world renowned because of its rich history, unique architecture, amazing food, and jazz music. When a person thinks of the French Quarter he or she probably envisions iconic Bourbon Street; however, the Quarter has much more to offer. Many of the buildings in this area date back to 1803 when New Orleans was acquired by the United States in the Louisiana Purchase. Most of the architecture in the neighborhood reflect the Spanish and French rule shown through colorful walls, roofs, and elaborately decorated ironwork balconies and galleries. The French Quarter is also known for its outstanding restaurants. Located in the heart of sportsman’s paradise, local restaurants have the ability to receive fresh ingredients daily from fisherman, hunters, and farmers. Some famous restaurants include Arnaud’s, Antoine’s, Tujague’s, Galatoire’s, Broussard’s and Brennan’s. There are close to 5,000 residents of the French Quarter; however, millions of visitors come each year to share the amazing experience this place has to offer. New Orleans tourism officials announced last year that nearly 10 million people visited the area in 2013. A University of New Orleans study also showed visitors spent an all time record of $6 billion dollars in the French Quarter. Other important features of the French Quarter include, but are not limited to, Jackson Square, the St. Louis Cathedral, the Cabildo, the Old U.S. Mint, Café Du Monde, and the French Market.

The French Quarter and the City of New Orleans are known for their good times and fun atmosphere. Some of the festivals that occur in the area are the French Quarter Festival, Mardi Gras, Sugar Bowl, and the Essence Festival. Many residents and tourists of the city enjoy these festivities that are offered in a reasonable and safe manner. However, some people may enjoy the atmosphere so much that it will lead them into a jail cell. Driving under the influence has become a serious criminal offense over the years and can lead to harsh consequences. If a person is arrested for a DUI/DWI, then your case can either follow two distinct tracks. In the first track you can be charged in Traffic Court with the criminal offense of DUI/DWI. The second track isn Quasi-Criminal, involving an Administrative Hearing to determine if your driver’s license should be suspended. The Administrative Hearing is not automatic and must be requested in writing. Due to the harsh consequences that can arise, if you are arrested for a DUI/DWI the best advice one can give is to hire a local attorney that has the experience to handle these types of cases.  Cliff Cardone is that experienced attorney. He has been described as the “go-to” attorney in Louisiana. Cliff has over 40 years of experience in handling these types of cases.
