Lawyer List Discussion

Bradley Allen Pierson, Attorney at Law
(985) 467-9211

No physical office. Meetings by appointment.
Late hours available.

I'm a solo practitioner with a general civil practice. I live in Ponchatoula, and I am licensed to practice law in Louisiana only. I'm mostly 21st JDC (Tangipahoa, Livingston, St. Helena), which your list seems to be currently missing, and I also do some work in Baton Rouge. Wills and successions provide most of my clients; litigation provides most of my hours. I have appellate experience. I do not do criminal defense, and would only be able to refer such a matter out, but I've made a point of being prepared for every type of gun-related civil litigation I could come up with.

As far as gun group memberships go, I've been a LOCAL member for a while now, having started with OCDO back before law school. Drove to classes past a gun free sign, hoping to one day have it removed. Also an NRA Lifetime member, but I've been around long enough to know that's hardly evidence of a strong pro-gun mindset.

On a different note, as I previously mentioned to Steve Raacke, I'm looking at challenging the constitutionality of the 1,000 foot radius in La. R.S. 14:95.2(A) and 14:95.5's prohibition in non-bar alcohol serving restaurants as applied to OC. (Schools and bars, while part of the same statutes, are a tougher sell, don't possess the chilling factor of ambush, and involve a different line of legal reasoning because they operate as full bans, so I'd not put them in the same suit.) To do this I need plaintiffs with standing, and I'm hoping LOCAL has some of them. Both of those laws are currently CC compatible in the areas I'm targeting, which means that anyone with a permit is going to be facing merely a prohibition on a particular manner of carry. Strict scrutiny is still supposed to apply, but "just put a jacket on" is too tempting an out to offer a court. In order to challenge the laws as an outright bar I need people who don't have CHPs and, preferably, cannot get them for innocuous reasons. This means people ages 18-20. Optimally, I'd like one each of women/physically handicapped, military, and police to round out the set (need, expertise, and consistency, respectively), all 18-20. On the restaurant angle, having someone who runs a steakhouse or similar business, occasionally serves wine, and is annoyed at the state for prohibiting customers from carrying when 100% sober (and perhaps no alcohol has even been served to anyone that night) would showcase the state's bullheaded intrusiveness rather well. I can raise it as a hypo regardless, but if we have such a restaurant owner as a party that would really drive it home. I'm also interested in listing LOCAL itself as a plaintiff; short explanation is that LOCAL, operating for its purpose of advancing OC, has standing if even one of its members does.

I'll be at the LaPlace and Baton Rouge meetings this month, to discuss the matter in person. If you're interested, please give the membership rolls a quick look over.

Sincerely,

Bradley Pierson

I just talked to Mr. Walter Sanchez, a Lake Charles lawyer. He is ready & willing to meet with our group to discuss being our representative is case needed. He stated he has experience in 2nd amendment cases & supports our rights under said amendment. Our Lake Charles meeting is next Tuesday, & I will arrange a meeting with our group & Mr. Sanchez.

Sounds GOOD. We sure need someone in the Lake Area. I have had his contact info in my phone for a long time.
Thanks

"Yesterday I went & had a talk with a local lawyer, Mr. Walter M. Sanchez. He is well versed in the 2nd Amendment & is willing to be our legal eagle if needed. He stated he is serious about protecting our rights & is on 24/7/365 call if needed. He furnished me with some business cards & a write-up of his experience. I will pass them out at our June meeting."
