James Williams, a prominent New Orleans attorney, now represents the eyewitness at the center of the investigation into the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.
"Dorian Johnson has nothing to hide," said James Williams, the attorney representing Johnson. "He and Michael Brown were innocent victims here."
Dorian Johnson's credibility in this case has nothing to do with what he's been charged with in the past. It has to do with what he saw here, seeing his friend get murdered, in cold blood, by a police officer.

Because residents were under a mandatory evacuation order, they may be able to recover their evacuation expenses under their homeowner's policy, says attorney John Houghtaling, managing partner of Gauthier, Houghtaling and Williams. "Most homeowners policies offer coverage for evacuations from the home for up to 30 days if ordered by civil authority," Houghtaling says. "Residents should look for the clause in their homeowner's policy and keep receipts and records of what they have spent during their evacuation from Hurricane Gustav." Your insurance deductible will apply first before any claims are paid, Houghtaling says.
