I attended LSU law school in the fall of 1985, became a Moot Court Member, then graduated in the summer of 1989. I passed the bar exam and had the honor and privilege of being admitted as a Louisiana lawyer by the Louisiana Supreme Court on October 6, 1989. Then, I worked as a Research Associate at LSU law school's Center for Civil Law Studies, for about 9 years, and practiced law on the side. In the year 2000, I worked for a Baton Rouge law firm, and in the summer of 2001, I opened my own law office. I am also a certified translator in three languages: French, Arabic, and English.

Attorney Jebara is an Awesome Lawyer!
I recently had the privilege of working with attorney AJ. He helped me in every way he could. He was very professional, kind, patient, caring and knowledgeable. He helped me make everything smooth and successful. He patiently answered any questions I had. He makes sure he does everything correctly and promptly. God sent me a good lawyer who is honest and hardworking. I received exceptional service from attorney AJ. I wholeheartedly recommend attorney AJ.

Professional, responsive and knowledgeable
Mr. Jebara assisted me in getting a divorce. While the process is simple, it was not until I met with Mr. Jebara that I found myself at ease. I did not initiate the divorce but wanted to be sure everything was handled properly. I could not have picked a better guy for the job. Mr. Jebara provided comprehensive information about how the process would go and kept me informed. We need more professionals with the level of empathy and support that Mr. Jebara provides. I am forever grateful.

Excellent attorney
I had the pleasure to use this great lawyer for child support and custody. My case was difficult because my daughters father lives out of state but my lawyer took care of everything. He was so helpful and patient explaining the process to me. In the end the result was better then I was expecting! I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing legal counsel.

Afif Jebara, an exceptionally, honest and awesome family law lawyer!
Lawyers can be expensive and just after one's money, but that is not the case with Afif Jebara. I hired AJ for my custody and child support matters and he went above and beyond to make sure I got what I deserved. AJ explained every single thing and every step along the process and was always bluntly honest with where my case stood. I appreciate his honesty and most of all, the many extra hours, he put into my case in order to ensure the best possible outcome. AJ is worth every dollar spent and more. Words cannot express my gratitude towards this lawyer. Thank you, always, AJ!

AJ has the proper experience, the right attitude and has a moral compass.
From the get go, AJ made me feel very comfortable with the divorce proceedings. He laid out all of my options and explained why I may or may not want to proceed a certain way but he always reiterated that it was ultimately my choice. Here we have a gentlemen who is laid back when speaking with his clients but a go getter when it’s time to step up. Exactly what I needed and expected after our consultation! Given his knowledge, time in the business and ability to communicate and truly understand his clients, I believe he is undeniably well worth his fee! Because I had a prejudice When it came to any attorney as a lot of us do, I was pleasantly surprised in his demeanor and care for my situation, divorce. He is the top dog! Look it up!

Attorney AJ is Awesome! He is Professional, Knowledgeable, and Always Accessible to Answer My Questions!
I’m so glad I had Attorney AJ to handle my case! He was very professional and knowledgeable! Because if his experience and accessibility when I had questions or concerns, my anxiety level almost diminished! Overall, Attorney AJ made a very emotional and hard transition less stressful, because of his great customer service!

A Blessing from God!
We read online reviews on Afif Jebara and decided to take a chance in contacting him. AJ was compassionate and understanding of my case. He was flexible in arranging our meetings so that my aunt could drive me from Houston, TX when I was able to. He worked tirelessly to help me win custody of my daughter, as well as to attain a divorce. This was a very difficult case since the father appealed the case, but AJ worked very hard to win our case. My family and I are so appreciative that we found this great man.

One of a kind.
When I realized I needed an attorney, I “interviewed “ 6 different potentials.they were all the same,rushing me,cutting off my sentences,not really interested, and giving the impression they didn’t really care...that seems to be a common trait among some attorneys. However in my unique situation, a truly evil woman was trying to take my kids away for me permanently because I fell in love with another woman four years after our divorce. My 1st consultation with Afif lasted from 9:30am-5:30 pm.he was attentive, interested, and wanted to hear everything,every piece of evidence I had! He wanted a timeline of the events that transpired, wanted to know about my children, and me,what I did for a living, things I cared about, what I truly wanted out of his services...it was UNREAL. An attorney who actually CARED! When you do need an attorney sometimes you actually need a “legal gladiator”, someone who knows legal WAR.Afif or AJ as I’ve come to know him,LIVES FOR IT. He took my case because I proved my innocence to him, and with that proof,he went in the courtroom battled “PURE EVIL”...and flat out embarrassed her.(she even lost her temper in the courthouse!) I’m happy to say I have my children, Which is the greatest gift this world could ever give,and I will always consider AJ one of my dearest friends.He is a person of unquestionable character and morals he will not take every case but if he takes your case, you can rest assured knowing that he will not rest! you will be his top priority his billing is more than fair and he will know every detail about your case backwards and forwards, it will keep him up at night, and I believe that’s what you want a person who cares as much about your life, and how this case will affect you ,as you do.When he needs to be, he is absolutely ruthless and it’s a beautiful thing to witness.Hes very professional and I believe more attorneys should aspire to be like him.AJ is truly One of a kind. -Sincerley Thankful Dad

AJ is a fantastic attorney. I have retained AJ’s services to represent my case for the last two years. He has delivered on every aspect regarding my divorce, custody and visitations issues. AJ is an honest lawyer and one that truly goes above and beyond for his clients. I cannot be happier with the results of my case. I HIGHLY recommend anyone looking for an honest attorney to represent them regarding family law to retain AJ’s services.

Would Hire Again
AJ was recommended to me by a family member. After our initial consultation, AJ was very knowledgeable about my case. He was accommodating while working around my crazy life schedule to meet when needed and was always easy to get in contact with. During all meetings he was professional and personable. He took the time to get to know me as a person and showed that he truly cares about his clients. During trial AJ proved to have wealth of knowledge about the legal system and represented me with class. I would hire AJ again in a heartbeat!

Divorce
I would like to first thank him for everything he did for me in this matter. On our first visit, we consulted, he was very thorough with his duties as a lawyer, he was very understanding to my case and he was very welcoming on handling it.... He explained everything piece by piece, so that I understood what was needed. He made me feel comfortable as a client while everything was being taken care of. I would recommend him to anyone that's in need of any matter that he can represent you for, because he will do great in getting the job done.
