We offer defense work to a range of facilities in Louisiana and Mississippi facing medical negligence claims, including nursing homes, assisted living facilities, laboratories, hospitals and mental health facilities operated by private corporations and public entities.

We are aggressive litigators and influential in the regulatory arena. Much of our work stems from referrals and our work on behalf of the Louisiana Department of Insurance. Additionally, we have experience in handling class action and multidistrict litigation, in areas including hepatitis C, Serzone, Baycol and blood products.

Our dedicated attorneys can provide solid defense against claims of serious injury, abuse, neglect and wrongful death.
