William B. Baggett Jr.

Personal History:

William B. Baggett Jr., who goes by Billy, grew up following in his father’s footsteps. As a child, he would tell people that he wanted to be either a preacher or a lawyer. He believed both professions to be ones held by intellectuals which is how he wanted to be seen.

Billy is named after his father, William Baggett who was one of the founding members of the firm back in 1958. If you were to ask Billy which case he is most proud of, he would probably tell you about the time he helped get the Louisiana Supreme Court to change how it handles cases related to asbestos illnesses such as mesothelioma and asbestosis. It was a difficult case that eventually ended up in front of the state supreme court, but the resulting ruling has been benefiting victims of asbestos-related illnesses ever since. You can trust your personal injury case in the hands of the mesothelioma lawyers at Baggett McCall. Call today for a free consultation.
