Josh Clayton, a Byrd High School alumnus, graduated with a degree in accounting from LSU in 2002, then from LSU Law School in May of 2006.  From 2004-2006, Josh clerked for the McKernan Law Firm in Baton Rouge, learning how to represent the interests of personal injury clients.

From 2006 to 2008, Josh gained valuable negotiation and trial experience as an associate attorney at the Hammond law firm of Anderson & Boutwell, where he fought for plaintiffs in personal injury and workers’ compensation litigation.  “I run my practice just as Tom Anderson and Gary Boutwell run theirs:  efficiently, ethically, and fully aware that my clients are my most valuable assets.  I always take care of my clients.”

After moving back to his hometown and opening a general practice in 2008, Josh joined the Bossier Parish Public Defender Office on a part-time basis, spending four years in criminal courtrooms defending indigent men and women facing all types of criminal charges.  Since 2013, Josh Clayton Law has grown to solely focus on serious personal injury matters.

Josh is a member of the Shreveport Bar Association, the Bossier Bar Association, the Harry V. Booth Judge Henry A. Politz Inn of Court, and the Louisiana Association for Justice.

Excellent Resource
The Clayton Law Firm did exactly what was presented to me during my consultation. The staff kept me informed of developments and I was able to view all documents anytime online at my convenience. Communication was key and I appreciated always being able to talk to Joshua or his staff at anytime of the day. I was able to focus on my own scheduled Doctor visits and therapy, while he moved progress with my personal injury case to an agreed settlement. A law firm I highly recommend to Family and Friends who are seeking an Attorney that cares about your health and recovery above all.

Incredible
In dealing with Josh and his staff, I didn't know what to expect so I did as most millennials and googled my ass off. This man lives up to the hype. Incredibly happy with his results, his diligence, and his constant contact. I could not recommend Josh Clayton enough.

AMAZING
My experience was excellent. Josh Clayton was always so friendly and caring. He made sure that every issue I was having from my accident was addressed. He made sure we did not move forward until I was back to normal physically. I definitely will refer any one I know who has an accident and need a legal representation. He definitely made a bad situation better and easy to recover from. I am forever grateful

Charges dropped
After finding there was a warrant for my arrest the first thing I did was contact Joshua. He informed me of the possible outcomes, but also laid out his plan to fight for me. Before the first court date he had already contacted the district attorney and began working with them to clear this matter.

Excellent Attorney!!!!!
Joshua Clayton represented my husband after he was in an auto accident. After our first consultation with Josh we felt very comfortable and knew he had the knowledge to take on our case. We were kept in the loop about everything and were never left wondering the status of the case. We knew that Joshua would take care of us & he didn't let us down. We would recommend The Clayton Law Firm to anyone!

Caring and Personal
We've all heard and made the lawyer jokes. But when you need a lawyer you not only NEED but you WANT Josh Clayton on your side. He is hard working, tenacious, smart, and caring. He makes sure that whatever it is, big or small, no detail gets overlooked. He will walk you through the process and explain to you how things will go. I can not recommend him enough. You want him on your team when dealing with the Law. Don't try to handle these things on your own. He knows how to best assist and help you with your case.

Passionate Lawyer
The Josh Clayton firm is very professional. Josh was honestly concerned about my situation. The thing I liked most about the Josh taking my case was, He always said, " I will not quit until you are satisfied." He was true to his word; when I was satisfied,he was satisfied. I would definitely use him again.

Experienced. Professional. Understanding. Hard Working.
I hired Josh Clayton to assist with a very personal and important family matter. Josh provided his services with expertise, precision, and a delicacy seldom found in the legal industry. I highly recommend Josh if you are looking for someone that knows what they are doing and will go the extra mile because he cares. Thank You Josh!

Go with Josh Clayton!!! He the man!!!
In all seriousness, my attorney was very professional while at the same time being extremely relatable and easygoing. He was very clear about what he was going to be doing regarding my case and kept me informed every step of the way. He let me know exactly what I needed to do and how and when to do it. He kept reasonable office hours and never missed a meeting. He did everything to actually include me in the process, even allowing my own input or opinion at times. He didn't make me feel uneasy or under him, although I do believe as far as age goes he only has me by one to a few years at most. Despite all the niceties, he did a damn good job on my case and got me more than I ever thought possible. Any troubles or complaints I had were all with the responsible party's insurance company or my medical insurance and providers at the time of the relevant incident. All in all, he was just really a nice and genuine person to have as a lawyer. His staff was also pretty great!!!
