I contacted Blake David for a car accident injury. I had never dealt with him before. I would highly recommend Blake. He went above and beyond to help me. Contacted his staff numerous times with questions and they were always so helpful and polite. The entire office made me feel like a family member or a longtime friend. My case was handled in a timely manner and I was very satisfied with the outcome. Anyone looking for a fantastic attorney then Blake David is your attorney!

Caring, Trustworthy, Responsible, Experienced and Reliable
I never thought that I would ever have to hire an attorney, but accidents do happen. I was referred to the firm Broussard and David, specifically Blake David by a friend of mine. The injuries that I sustained in this freak accident were serious making my recovery very difficult and life long. Because of the nature of my accident, it was difficult and complicated case. I needed an attorney like Blake David. He is an experienced attorney that worked hard and fought for me. Blake fought and made sure that I received a fair settlement. Three years later, I was in an automobile accident. I was rear ended by a driver from a delivery company. I didn’t hesitate to contact Blake David again. You see, I have complete trust in Blake, and his firm. I knew that they would handle my legal needs for the second accident. My injuries were again significant. Things get really complicated once you’ve had a couple of accidents but, I can always count on Blake, his firm and his staff. A fair settlement is the one thing that can start to make you feel whole again. Justice Obtained!
