About Jed

Learn Jed’s areas of practice.

Jed Cain is an accomplished trial lawyer who has obtained multi-million dollar jury verdicts and settlements throughout the state of Louisiana. He has dedicated his career to representing injured workers and their families.

Originally from the small town of Natchitoches, Louisiana (made famous by the movie “Steel Magnolias”), Jed attended Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas. Upon graduating from Hendrix, Jed spent a year teaching 5th grade at an elementary school in Shreveport, Louisiana before attending law school at Tulane University.  He would later come to appreciate that no jury would ever be so daunting as a classroom of 5th graders.

In 2014, Jed was awarded the F. Scott Baldwin Award by the American Association for Justice (AAJ).  AAJ, formerly known as the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (ATLA), is the world’s largest trial lawyer bar and supports victims’ rights worldwide.  The F. Scott Baldwin Award is presented each year to the “most outstanding young trial lawyer” in the country.

Jed is a 2015 graduate of the Trial Lawyers College, an invitation only program dedicated to training and educating trial lawyers who are committed to the jury system and to representing and obtaining justice for individuals. The College was founded and led by legendary trial lawyer, Gerry Spence, over the course of three weeks.

Beyond practicing law, Jed is a husband and father of three young children.  In 2016, he was appointed by Gov. Jon Bel Edwards to serve on the Board of Directors for the Jimmy D. Long, Sr. Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts.  Jed is an actively involved Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) working on behalf of abused and neglected children within the court system.

Jed Cain was a fabulous attorney! He was so kind, thorough, prompt at responding, and very helpful. He did a great job of keeping me in the loop with how my case was going and prepared me well for every step. He was able to find me the medical care I needed and ensured I got all my needs met. I was very happy with the end results of my case and can't thank him enough for all he did for me!

Excellent Attorney
My husband and I were forced into suing a governmental entity. Mr. Cain accepted the challenge and immediately began working on our case. He quickly filed all necessary paperwork and kept us informed every step of the way. As a result of his knowledge and diligence, our case was settled in a timely manner and in our favor. I would definitely recommend Jed Cain to anyone needing an attorney.

Lifesaving at best!
Jed Cain accepted case with no guarantee of anything. Jed and his staff were always friendly and made sure they kept in step with us, they returned calls and allowed me to get my husband better. Our case was unique, being from the small town of Leesville there were no attorneys that specialized in our type of case. Our family is so grateful for Mr. Jed Cain, he saved our lives, our family and our home. He was nothing short of a Godsend.

A pleasure to work with!
I had to help select a firm to represent my stepfather after his offshore injury. I was impressed with the response time and also how personable Jed and his partner were. They truly seemed to care how things were handled. They sent a flower arrangement to my stepdad in the hospital. The plant, like my stepfather, are still both alive and well. I hope we never need their services again, but if so, I'd definitely call Jed!

Victory!!!
Aloha ;) I took a lunch with an attorney from Herman Herman & Katz not really knowing what I was doing. My case had been turned down by 2 other firm's. Within seconds of meeting Jed my Now long time attorney I felt it, a sense of peace that everything was gone be just fine. HHK has been there for me through it all, guiding and reassuring me when I felt it was all falling apart. I now consider Jed my HHK Attorney a Brother as we were able to take my case through the finish line together with astonishing results. Thank you so much HHK for your Wisdom, Personal attention, & Expertise. Truly, Chris

Jed fought the good fight !
We hired Herman Herman & Katz in May of 2012 to represent us after we were the victims of a traffic accident. Jed Cain became the lead attorney on our case. We found him to be very professional and engaging. Mr. Cain was very reassuring and supportive from the very start. We were satisfied with every aspect of his representation. His partner, Danielle Treadaway assisted Jed on our case was very helpful as well. I am as a rule not very trusting when it comes to dealing with attorney.'s I will say that my association with Jed and his law partners helped me put my trust issues to rest. We were happy with the outcome of our case. Respectfully Charlie

Top Notch Legal Servicd
Jed and everyone at Herman, Herman, & Katz were extremely knowledgable, professional, and friendly. I myself am a practicing attorney and deal with other lawyers on a daily basis. Therefore, I am more critical of other attorneys than most. That being said, the representation I received from Jed and his associates was absolutely top notch, and I give them my highest endorsement.

A Multi MILLION verdict corraled by Jed Cain. The leader of Justice for you in Louisiana's Courts!
I was a client of Jed Cain in a case that had a 6+ year run in Louisiana's court system. I found Mr. Cain to be a very thorough Attorney in all aspects of Law as he sailed our ship through the Louisiana District court securing a winning verdict. Through the Louisiana Court Of Appeals, Securing another winning verdict. Then on to the Louisiana Supreme Court with another win and the dragging in of the GOLD bars of VICTORY!! It was a hard fought personal severe injury case that left me totally disabled. The corporate entity's involved being with opposing council denied any wrong doing, Denied any help, Tried to say I hurt myself and was to blame. Threw Major misdirection at every sentence I spoke. Conjured up things that never happened. Tried to dig up anything about my life that they could make into trash to discredit me. Played the time game to drag this case along slowly to place financial burden upon my household. This gives you an adequate ideal of what was raining down upon me and I learned from every little peace of this case as it started and finally came to the End. Without a doubt, Jed Cain showed his skill in the courtroom to be that of a winner. Jed would talk to me via phone as often as needed, 2 to 5 times a week through discovery and depositions. Jed called me at least once a week to check on my well being, how I was making it and always wanted to know and would call and discuss my many trips to the Emergency Room and all Doctor visits. I loved his uplifting words of all is ok. Hang in there. were doing great. Another wonderful thing about having Mr. Cain for an attorney was he kept me immediately up to date with my case and explained things from the legal view into a story that could be clearly understood by someone such as myself who had no legal understanding of such a complicated case. I found Jed to be a fighter for my rights, a listener who was happy to talk about anything I wanted to talk about. Mr. Cain's knowledge of law and courtroom procedures always ruled the day and his interactions with my case were handled with impeccable honesty and commitment. If Jed talked to opposing council. It was never done behind my back. Jed's predictions of what was going on in the case and courtroom were always accurate and he would give you the truth be it good or bad. Bottom line is Jed preformed and out maneuvered all challenges and obstacles thrown our way. His skill and handling of my case gave me the confidence to fight on and ultimately a very generous VICTORY. If it got dark. Jed would show me the light. Jed also traveled across multi states to visit me in my home. Our side had integrity and spoke what was the truth always. Jed Cain and the HHK Law firm stood up for me and there was never a time that their concern and caring for me or my case could be in doubt to me. The case is winding down now. I can live and just look for new beginning's and unload the stress and load up on peace in my life. We won, Fabulous. But better still is the respect and friendship I still have with Jed Cain and the HHK law firm. This is the guy who has the drive, Knowledge and commitment to win your case. Communication is top notch and you will never be in the dark. A true leader of Men in the courtroom. So proud to know him. Rewarded by Jed's ability and drive. No doubt, (The Best in the courtroom) My regards. Make the call.
