Michael Antoon

Lake Charles, Louisiana

Michael Antoon, a native of Natchitoches, Louisiana, received his Bachelors in Business Administration from Northwestern State University of Louisiana in May of 2007. He then went on to earn his Juris Doctor from Southern University Law Center in Baton Rouge in May of 2010. Following graduation, Michael's desire was to become a trial attorney. In the spring of 2012 he observed a 2nd Degree Murder trial and realized that criminal defense was an area of the law that he was drawn to. In the summer of 2013 he began a private practice in Calcasieu Parish, and was conflict counsel for indigent criminal cases through the public defender's office. During that year he handled hundreds of criminal matters from misdemeanors to the most serious of criminal cases. He handled every aspect of criminal cases from arrest to jury trial. Michael has exhibited a unique talent for trial work, and is already recognized as one of the top criminal lawyers in the area.

Michael also has experience in civil matters, other areas of litigation, and legal affairs, as well as experience in estate planning, asset protection and Medicaid Long-term Care Benefits qualification. Through this experience, Michael has particularly noticed how the estate and life planning landscape has changed over the past few decades due to increased life-expectancy and health-care costs for seniors. This area of practice is unique and rewarding. Michael blends his trial practice with this most valuable service to clients who recognize the need to protect their assets for themselves and their families.
