A law firm who cares and listens to you!

If we have not already had the pleasure of meeting, please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Wendy Manard. I am a personal injury lawyer. We have offices in Metairie, Louisiana and Los Angeles, California, but we help clients all over the states of Louisiana and California. 

I am a native of New Orleans. I have lived in the New Orleans area and the Southern California area most of my life. I am a member of both the California and Louisiana Bar Associations. I double majored at the University of California in Santa Barbara, where I also ran cross country and track. I graduated from Tulane Law School. Before law school, I was a substitute teacher in Santa Barbara, Calfornia, and then went on to be a full time special education public school teacher in the New Orleans area for under priviledged kids. The first two years of my legal career were focused on child advocacy. I am now a mother to an amazing young man, Matthew. While I still do pro bono work for abused and neglected children, my focus for the last twenty years has been in helping injured adults and children. I have obtained numerous multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of my clients. When I became a lawyer, I vowed to use my law degree to help people. I feel that a life is best lived if it is spent helping others.

We are a small firm and for that reason we treat each and every client like family. I understand that there are a lot of lawyers to chose from and it is our honor to represent you. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I look forward to talking with you.

Sincerely,

Wendy Manard

Review of Manard Law
I was in a car accident in September of last year, and I hired Wendy and her legal team. They helped me to get the medical care I needed, and got me a settlement without going to court. I was very pleased with their services. I would recommend Manard Law to anyone having to deal with an insurance company concerning a personal injury.

Excellent Attorney
Wendy Manard and her team went above and beyond my expectations. All my needs and questions were always handled in a timely manner. I know that Wendy was always looking out for what was best for me. She referred me to the best doctors, and gave me the most informed advice a attorney could give. She fought for every dollar I received. Overall I am more then satisfied with Wendy and her team, and the overall outcome I received. I would highly recommend Wendy Manard if you are in need of a attorney.

One of the Best in the Greater New Orleans Area
My case was very difficult and complicated. First time I called in by phone she carefully listened, clearly and openly explained my position and the legal facts. She then came with wise, logic and reliable guidance how I should prepare for it and what her strategy would be. This was even before we have a contract. Her extensive experience and deep understanding was clear in every word. She simply did an outstanding job, put effort reviewing and discussing every single detail in the correct direction to get it done. She willingly answered tons of my questions and guided me smoothly through each stage. She is extensively experience, professional, straight forward, reliable, honest, respectful and trustful. I thank God that I chose this trustworthy law firm, I believe selecting them was one of the best decisions in my life and definitely recommend for any complicated difficult cases
