About me

Jody Anderman earned his undergraduate degree in Accounting from
Louisiana State University in 1985 and then attended LSU Law School. After
graduating from law school in 1988, where he was the recipient of the American
Jurisprudence Awards in Louisiana Civil Procedure and Louisiana Sales, he began
his legal career as a defense attorney with one of Baton Rouge's largest law
firms. Although he gained valuable experience as a defense lawyer, he had a
strong desire to represent working men and women, aggrieved consumers and
others who have suffered significant losses and began doing so in 1992.

Since 1992, Mr. Anderman has represented thousands of individuals who
have been injured in accidents or exposed to hazardous substances, such as Asbestos. He has also represented thousands of consumers who have been victims
of fraud. Most notably, he was lead counsel in several class actions filed
against insurance companies involving "vanishing premium" life
insurance policies. Many of those cases resulted in multimillion-dollar
settlements. The insurance cases were based on representations that monthly
premiums would vanish after a stated number of years. Mr. Anderman was
instrumental in negotiating settlements valued at $70 million against National
Life of Vermont, $128 million against Allmerica Financial Life, and $69.4
million against Lincoln National Life Insurance Company. Mr. Anderman was also
lead counsel in a number of other similar cases, all-resulting in substantial

For the last decade, Mr. Anderman has primarily focused his practice on
helping those injured as a result of being exposed to Asbestos.  He has been instrumental in the
collection of millions of dollars of verdicts and settlements for his clients.

Anderman is a member of the Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and American Bar
Associations, as well as the Louisiana and American Trial Lawyers Associations.
