    From delayed and underpaid property damage claims to denials, I am dedicated to protecting the rights of my clients against the insurance company and getting them the compensation they deserve.

    14 years

My name is Nicholas M. Graphia and I am a licensed Louisiana attorney, focusing on property insurance claims, contract law, and bad faith litigation. With 17 years of experience in the legal and insurance industries, I have the track record necessary to help home and business owners maximize their insurance claims. From delayed and underpaid claims to denials, I am dedicated to protecting the rights of my clients against the insurance company and getting them the compensation they deserve.

As a former insurance defense attorney and insurance agent, I understand the complexities of the claims process. I have experience negotiating with most major insurance carriers, and I routinely use my knowledge and experience to help my clients get the money they need to repair their property.

I am a solo practitioner, licensed in all Louisiana state and federal courts, serving Baton Rouge, New Orleans and the surrounding areas. I maintain a network of independent insurance professionals and attorneys with whom I consult on a case-by-case basis, so I can get the best results for my clients. I also work with nationwide firms through which I have helped many clients as far away as New York and New Jersey, mostly with their Superstorm Sandy insurance claims. I earned my bachelor’s and law degrees from Louisiana State University. With experience in both trial and appellate courts, I have helped many policyholders and commercial and residential claimants obtain favorable settlements from insurance companies.

Dedicated and Competent
Would definitely recommend this lawyer to anyone. Nick took on a major insurance company that had denied my claim. Explained to Nick what happened and he went to work. He was like a pitbull.Never quit and always kept me informed. He managed to get an award for me (a big one) and also an apology from insurance company.

Good lawyer
Nick helped me get great results on my property insurance clain. My insurance company made a very low offer before he got involved. He negotiated with them relentlessly and made sure I got all the money I needed to repair my home. Very pleased.
