Haymer Law Firm
Attorney Niles B. Haymer
Attorney Niles B. Haymer, 39, earned his Juris Doctorate degree from Southern University Law Center in 2003, where he was Articles Editor of the Southern University Law Review and a member of the American Trial Lawyers' Association Mock Trial Team. He was also a recipient of the Russell B. Long Federal Court Award and Juvenile Clinic Student Attorney of the Year Award. Niles earned his Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Southern University in 2000, graduating with the highest GPA in the Nelson Mandela School of Public Policy.
As an undergraduate student at Southern, Haymer was elected Student Government Association (SGA) President in 1999. During his tenure in office, Haymer implemented mentoring and reading programs at elementary schools in North Baton Rouge. It was also during this time that he fought against chemical plants burning the napalm chemical in close proximity to the University and the surrounding communities. At the conclusion of his term as SGA president, Haymer was voted as most intriguing story of the year by the Southern Digest.
Haymer spent his first two years of practice at the Law Offices of Ossie Brown before branching out on his own at the age of 27 in 2005 and establishing Haymer Law Firm located in Downtown Baton Rouge. Although Haymer’s concentration is criminal defense, he handles juvenile, family, personal injury and worker’s compensation cases. Haymer has garnered the admiration of his fellow colleagues, not just other criminal defense attorneys, but prosecutors who respect his professionalism and his passion for the defense of his clients.
In the Baton Rouge local community, Haymer has many leadership roles and is proud to serve on the St. Francis Xavier Parish Council and sits on the board of Parents of Murdered Children.
Attorney Haymer has recently announced his candidacy for East Baton Rouge Parish Juvenile Court Judge, Section 2, Division B. His campaign’s theme is Our Children, Our Community, Our Future. Niles was once a young man who experienced racial profiling and seemed invisible to the education system unless it came to discipline. Attorney Haymer's past experiences led him to dedicate over 16 years of his practice to representing underprivileged youth and parents in Juvenile Court. Niles is a passionate advocate for justice and the treatment of our children. Niles’ goal to focus on the family unit as a whole by engaging families with resources to increase parental involvement, to concentrate on a specialized youth education plan and to assist with substance abuse issues through a Youth Drug Court.
