Areas of Practice

Personal Injury Law

The aftermath of an accident, whether on the road, at the workplace, or in a public or private area, is typically one of the most difficult times in the life of an individual or a family. As highly experienced lawyers in Baton Rouge, we have taken on countless cases on behalf of clients who have been severely injured or lost a loved one in an accident that was due to the negligent behavior of one or more parties.

We understand that many people find it difficult to pay for legal services, especially in the aftermath of a serious injury or wrongful death. That’s why we work on a contingency fee basis in personal injury cases. This means that we don’t get paid until our clients receive money through a settlement or a court’s award. We are here to be your representative with insurance companies and others with deep pockets to ensure that you receive the fair compensation you deserve regardless of financial status.

Types of personal injury cases the Russell Law Firm covers include:

Auto Accidents

Representatives of insurance companies want to give victims the bare minimum in compensation; it’s their job. However, a good auto accident attorney knows the ins and outs of insurers representing negligent parties trying to minimize their financial exposure. We know what’s realistic to expect and we fight to obtain the best possible compensation for our clients with consistently outstanding outcomes.

Trucking Accidents

If you are looking for a truck accident lawyer in Baton Rouge, then you or a family member have most likely been badly harmed or killed. Large commercial truck accidents in particular almost always cause significant damage to both property and people. The Russell Law Firm is dedicated to making sure that individuals, families, and survivors are well represented and obtain the compensation that is truly commensurate with the situation.

Important note: Most trucking companies carry liability insurance of around $1 million. If commercial truck drivers are found to be at fault in an accident where someone was injured or killed, the victim[s] or survivors may be able to obtain a significantly higher compensation than in other types of accidents.

Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is not only emotionally overwhelming but financially as well. While nothing can reverse a personal loss, a good attorney can help survivors achieve a level of financial security through civil litigation.

DWI and DUI Defense

Under Louisiana Law, a charge of DWI (driving while intoxicated) is issued when the driver of a vehicle is found to be operating under the influence of alcohol and/or other substances. Penalties for accused drivers have become increasingly severe over the years and the results can ruin an individual’s reputation and livelihood. Strong legal representation for defendants can mitigate the personal harm and make the difference between a relatively light sentence and an extremely severe one. When facts warrant, penalties may be avoided entirely. In some cases, the Russel Law Firm can work to expunge a charge from a client’s record so that they can resume a normal life and career.

Our highly-trained Baton Rouge attorneys can also work to either defeat or reduce the associated punishments with allegations such as a DWI while driving on a commercial driver’s license, DWI with a child in the vehicle, or vehicular homicide. In providing the best representation available, we may be able to significantly lessen the severity of the consequences.

Family Law

Divorce, child custody and visitation, spousal support, and community property partitions are serious matters that can make an enormous difference in the emotional and financial well-being of individuals and families. Going through a divorce is never pleasant, but our firm will do its best to make sure that you and/or your family will emerge from the experience as whole as possible.
