Eric is a amazing lawyer. Firstly i would like to say he will go above what a lawyer should for his clients! I never had someone fight my case as strongly as he did! He helped me out beyond any means, stayed in contact with me, gave me his personal cell. If I had any type of questions it was answered completely! I recommend to all my family and friends for any case big or small!! I couldn’t be happier with Eric as my attorney!!!

I would like to personally say that Eric Santana helped me out way more than I could ever imagine. Since day one of my case he was right there. He would always answer my calls, and see me in person whenever it was needed. This man is a man of his word. I was told I would be facing a mandatory prison sentence of 10 years in federal prison, and at the end I received less then half. No one else would have been able to do that. It was his determination to help his clients get what is just. I thank Eric Santana because if it wasn't for him I will still be away from my family. He truly is a great lawyer, and will fight for you until the very end. He has my respect and I will forever be grateful for his help in my case. I recommend him 100% to anyone.

Cardell Hayes files for new trial in killing of former Saints star Will Smith

Cardell Hayes wasted no time filing a motion for a new trial.

Just two days after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that non-unanimous jury verdicts violate the Constitution, Hayes’ attorneys filed a motion seeking to overturn his 10-2 manslaughter verdict handed down in 2016.

Hayes fatally shot former Saints star defensive lineman Will Smith and wounded Smith’s wife Raquel following a fender bender attributed to road rage. He is currently serving a 25-year sentence.

New Orleans inmate's fentanyl overdose sparks lawsuit against Sheriff Gusman: 'This is a pattern'

New Orleanians have become all too familiar with the toll of the opioid epidemic, which in recent years has claimed more lives in the city than gun violence.

But according to the coroner and a new lawsuit, a fatal fentanyl overdose one year ago happened in the last place where people should have access to illicit drugs: the city's jail.

Last week, relatives filed a suit in federal court alleging that the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office and the jail’s private health care provider failed to take steps that would have prevented the death of 28-year-old Edward Patterson.
