2016 Top 100 Lawyer

The American Society of Legal Advocates is an invitation-only, nationwide organization of elite lawyers in practice today who combine stellar legal credentials with a proven commitment to community engagement and the highest professional standards. Notable Cases…

I have been almost exclusively in the practice of criminal law for the past 31 years. I began my career by working for a criminal court judge doing legal research on criminal cases. From there I went directly to the public defender’s office in 1983 for the necessary courtroom training in what I considered to be the extended educational process. After two years in the PD I joined a local law firm as their criminal defense division. A few years later I started the firm of Flowers and Gold, practicing almost entirely in the field of criminal law. This firm eventually morphed to its current state as Flowers and Long, LLP.

In my career, I have litigated hundreds of criminal cases in city, state and federal courts. I have served as one of the founders, and President of the local defense bar association, the CDBA (Caddo Defense Bar Association), I also served as member and President of the Board of the organization that oversees indigent defense in our District, and was a longtime board member of the LACDL (the Louisiana Association of Criminal defense Lawyers). I have tried and won dozens of jury trials ranging from Military Courts Marshall to Federal Jury trials in drug cases, homicides and sex offenses. I am and have been for many years a member of the Federal American Inn of Court, and am licensed to practice in city and state court as well as the Federal Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.
