Legal Malpractice

Understanding the standards of legal practice in Louisiana presents its own unique set of challenges. Borrowing from Roman and Spanish influences, Louisiana is the only state that bases its legal system in civil law. The state also boasts the nation’s longest bar exam at 21.5 hours and does not administer the Multistate Bar Examination.

It takes a skilled, dedicated attorney to effectively practice law in Louisiana – someone with a client’s best interests in mind and the capability to pursue them. When lawyers through negligence or misconduct ignore those interests, they violate that trust, leaving you to deal with the consequences.

Pursuing a Legal Malpractice Claim

In legal malpractice cases, clients are often left feeling alone and helpless. They have neither the years of training it takes to understand their situation nor the desire to trust their well-being with other lawyers. These claims are usually contested, which makes it extremely important to have qualified legal representation on your side.
