Choose Your Lawyer Carefully

When hiring an attorney or law firm to handle your personal injury case, you want to make sure that your legal team is personally involved, reliable, and has the experience to achieve results that meet your goals. We always advise our clients to choose their lawyers carefully. Our Lake Charles attorneys have extensive experience in handling personal injury and wrongful death claims and provide the highest quality of service and advocacy in every case.

A Legal Team You Can Trust

Our Lake Charles attorneys and staff offer strategic advocacy you can rely on. We understand the challenges experienced by personal injury and wrongful death clients and can work to resolve your case without litigation when that best serves your interests. We do not charge fees, costs, or expenses for an initial consultation or vehicle damage recovery in personal injury cases (although we may pass through any expenses incurred in connection with such a recovery).

Our Lake Charles attorneys have been helping clients and families devastated by personal injury and wrongful death for over 60 years.

Community Involvement

We are active members of the community and are politically active throughout the Gulf Coast and the State of Louisiana. Our attorneys work hard to support strong political candidates in the region. In addition to our work in the legal community, and in the political arena, we are proud of our community service. Included in our local service work are our Partnerships in Education, representation of unions, and significant sponsorship of United Way, the American Cancer Society, and other worthy service organizations.

Personalized Service

Our firm focuses on a tradition of service and results-driven advocacy. We are a family-oriented practice, and we understand the importance of personally knowing our clients so we can best represent their interests. While we can often resolve cases quickly and efficiently without litigation, we are also prepared to take any case to trial to protect your rights. We work closely with investigators and expert consultants who help us explain your injuries and need for compensation. If it appears that your case should be filed in a jurisdiction in which we do not practice, we can often help you through our professional contacts to find appropriate representation in that jurisdiction.
