Our office has operated on Justice Avenue since June 1, 1993. It's a far piece from being an old farm boy from North Louisiana, but it's what I've wanted to do since the Seventh Grade. As a lawyer, I have been representing victims of accidents since 1989. Initially as a law clerk and then as a lawyer, I had the great opportunity to work for one of the most prestigious personal injury attorneys in the state. I worked there almost exclusively in the fields of medical negligence and maritime accidents. In 1991, I left for greener pastures to what was at the time the largest personal injury firm in the state. Not only was my experience in handling cases involving offshore accidents greatly expanded, but I learned how to represent the automobile accident victim. From there, I helped form a partneship which handled only personal injury and wrongful death cases.
If it involves an injury from an accident, I've probably handled something similar - whether it's a minor fender bender or a death on the high seas. From those humble beginnings, I now represent people the way I have always wanted to - on a personal level. It starts at the foundation of the relationship - the contract for services. Most attorneys charge 33%, others 36%, and a well-known advertising irm charges a 40% fee, if they settle your case without filing a lawsuit. Their fee is much higher if a lawsuit is necessary. This directly affects how much money you will receive for your injury. The lesser the attorney's fee means more money you will put in your pocket, and that's not just a guarantee - it's in your contract.
