Review Linda Houssiere

About Me

I believe the practice of law is the bedrock of our country.  My grandfather was a lawyer as were all three of his sons, including my father.  The legacy my family gave me forms the foundation upon which I've practiced law for 25 years.  I have been blessed and thrilled to represent more than 1,500 clients, who have suffered personal injuries, most against large national companies.  This David and Goliath story is replayed over and over in my practice.  I strongly believe that a committed attorney can bring an injured individual justice under our great American legal system.
