About Jarome

Learn Jarome’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Car accident
    Our firm has successfully handled hundreds of cases involving car wrecks and trucking wrecks, both through settlement and trials. These cases range from very large cases to smaller cases involving less serious injury.

  2. Medical malpractice
    Our firm has successfully handled a wide variety of cases involving Medical Malpractice and Nursing Home abuse and mistreatment. These cases often involve serious injury or Wrongful Death.

  3. Personal injury
    Our personal injury clients include a wide variety of cases - including people hurt at work, customers slipping and falling or otherwise being injured at various businesses and those who have suffered sexual abuse or harassment.


My clients are people who have been injured or have suffered the death of a family member due to someone else's carelessness.  We have helped folks recover from the burdens of an injury or death in cases arising from motor vehicle or truck wrecks, medical errors, workplace injuries, injuries on property, and injuries from defective products.  We greatly enjoy helping to "level the playing field" for our clients who are often up against large corporations or insurance companies.


I believe strongly that our civil justice system works best when it works for all citizens, and not just powerful business lobbies that would close the courthouse doors to ordinary citizens if tehy could.

Satisfied Client
I went to Gautreaux Law Firm not knowing what to expect and I can honestly say that I am very pleased with my end result. Attorney Gautreaux was very upfront with what to expect throughout the entire case. He as well as the entire staff kept me informed the entire time. I really appreciate the effort and I am so happy with my outcome.

Malpractice suite
Jarome and his staff represented us in a medical malpractice suite. They treated us like family and were willing to help us any way possible. Jarome was very professional and thorough investigating our case. He made sure we were informed all through the process. Jarome was well prepared and very professional in his presentation to the jury at the trial. The jury was impressed by his presentation of our case and awarded us $500,000. We will always remember how Jarome and his staff treated us friendship and care.

Smart, Persistent, and Caring Attorney
Jarome treated me with the utmost respect and kindness from the very moment I consulted with him regarding an injury I sustained from an automobile accident. I was impressed with his negotiating skills as well as his persistence in obtaining a just settlement for me from the insurance company. He was also great in keeping me informed throughout my case.
