Lincoln Parish has three courts having criminal jurisdiction, the 3rd Judicial District Court, Ruston City Court,  and Grambling City Court.  All criminal felonies are in the 3rd Judicial District Court, located in downtown Ruston, Louisiana. Misdemeanors and traffic cases may be in any of the three courts.  Lincoln Parish can be a tough place for criminal defendants, as the entire community, the prosecutors, and the judges are quite socially conservative.  Nevertheless, we have been successfully defending citizens charged with criminal offenses in the 3rd JDC for almost a quarter of a century.  Give us a call.
