I cannot stress how important it is to call an attorney immediately after you have been involved in a car accident or a work accident. The first days following those events are extremely important in setting your case on the right track. Building a legal case is not unlike building a house. It is best built on a solid foundation.
An insurance representative works for the insurance company, not you. No matter how nice they seem, they are doing their job and their job is to minimize what the insurance company pays to you. That does not make the representative a bad person. He or she is simply doing his/her job. The problem for you is that that representative does that job all day every day and they learn to do their jobs well. That places you at a significant disadvantage. You level the field when you hire my firm. I know what decisions need to be made in the beginning to maximize the value of your case.
I have represented individuals, insurance companies and businesses, and I am recognized by my peers for my excellent legal work. I have been designated as one of New Orleans Top Lawyers, Directory of Recommended Insurance Attorneys, and I have earned a Martindale-Hubbell (A+ Rating).
Sometimes you can settle your case without filing a lawsuit. Sometimes you cannot. When a lawsuit is needed, I know what to do to help you best. I believe in thorough preparation for trial. There is no substitute for courtroom experience. I have tried hundreds of cases to verdict. I have participated in scores of appeals and mediations. I am admitted to practice in both Louisiana and California state and federal courts.
My firm is a boutique, personal service-oriented law firm. As a result, when you hire me I handle your case, personally. Your case is not just another file in the cabinet, but it represents a person who has a problem who needs professional help. So, you receive personal, one-on-one attention and avoid the lonely experience many clients suffer when they hire a larger, multi-disciplinary law firm and your case is handed off to a lawyer or secretary who works at the firm, but who you did not hire to handle your case.
