Practice Areas Overview

Based in Bossier City, H. Lyn Lawrence, Jr. APLC serves clients throughout Northwest Louisiana in a variety of legal matters, including personal injury, family law, criminal defense, oil and gas leasing, complex estate litigation, and other civil litigation matters.

Personal Injury

We help injury victims and their families recover damages in a range of personal injury cases, including car accidents, trucking accidents, oil and gas explosions, and incidents involving heavy machinery.  In addition, we have experience handling complex cases involving serious and catastrophic harm, such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, or wrongful deaths.  For more information about our work on behalf of the injured, please see the personal injury page

Criminal Defense

Our criminal defense practice encompasses both misdemeanors and felonies at the state and federal levels.  In particular, we have a wealth of experience handling driving while intoxicated (DWI) matters, as well as cases involving drug crimes, such as possession and sale.  We understand that it can be intimidating to face the daunting criminal justice system, and work to guide our clients toward a swift resolution so that they can move on with their lives as soon as possible.  For more information about this process, please see the criminal defense page.

Family Law

A divorce or custody battle can prove to be among the most difficult situations a person may face.  Firm principal H. Lyn Lawrence, Jr. is dedicated to protecting your interests in even the most contentious family law disputes, whether a divorce, child custody, child support, alimony or spousal support, adoption, post-divorce modification, or property settlement matter.  For more information about our services in this area, please see the family law page

Oil and Gas Leasing

Oil, gas, and mineral rights are valuable assets in Northwest Louisiana, and oil and gas companies frequently lease drilling rights from landowners.  We are experienced in negotiating with oil and gas companies on behalf of landowners and members of the community to ensure that they are being fairly compensated for the drilling, and to draft agreements that will fully preserve all relevant legal rights and protect the land for future generations.  

Complex Estate Litigation

We have a wealth of experience handling complex and significant estate disputes that have escalated to litigation.  These can involve disagreements between family members, between beneficiaries and a fiduciary such as an executor or trustee, or disputes about the validity of a will or other document. 

General Civil Litigation

In addition to the specific areas of practice described above, we regularly draw on our trial experience to handle virtually any type of litigation with which a client needs assistance.  We have taken on numerous trial and appellate matters involving commercial litigation, business disputes, and contract disputes, and our familiarity with the local courts, judges, and opposing counsel has led to our serving as trial attorney for many fellow attorneys seeking local counsel.
