Review Carlos Zelaya

About Me

Carlos A. Zelaya, II received his law degree from American University’s Washington College of Law in 1992. Upon graduation, Carlos began practicing appellate advocacy in Washington, D.C. He soon returned to his native Louisiana and practiced in a high-volume civil litigation firm representing clients in automobile and truck accident cases, oyster-lease damage claims, asbestos and toxic chemical exposure cases, and industrial noise-induced hearing loss claims. His practice areas later expanded to include complex litigation involving toxic torts, environmental contamination, constitutional takings, commercial disputes, and bad faith insurance claims. Carlos has since successfully represented clients through trials and appeals in state and federal courts.
