ENGAGING EXCEPTIONAL LAWYERS
AROUND THE COUNTRY

Flowers, Peter R.

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 court room 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 court. I have served as one of the founders and, the president of the local defense bar association, the CDBA (Caddo Defense Bar Association), I also served as member and president of the board that oversees Indigent defense in our District, and was a long time 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 Inns of court and am licensed to practice on city and state court as well as the Federal Fifth Circuit court of appeals and the United States Supreme Court.
