Firm History

Labourdette Law Firm, L.L.C. was formed in 2003 with an emphasis on personal injury cases of all types; automobile accidents, 18-wheeler accidents, slip and fall, premises liability, and products liability. Recently, Labourdette Law Firm, L.L.C. merged with Labourdette & Associates, L.L.C., a firm that primarily handled criminal law, family law, DUI, and general practice law, so as to create a larger law firm, with offices on both sides of Lake Pontchartrain that could provide to its clientele a greater degree of legal coverage.

At Labourdette Law Firm, we make it a practice – not an exception – for the client to speak directly with their attorney, not a legal assistant. The attorneys at our firm are eager to provide the best legal assistance to any potential client that contacts the Firm, regardless of the size of the case or complexity of their legal issue.
