Trust, Compassion, and Service Translate to Our Commitment to Producing Results
Our lead wrongful death attorney and law firm founder, Danny Russell, has experienced the complete disregard the insurance companies have for families who have lost their loved ones to negligence, and are here to change how our clients are treated by the corporate giants who should be protecting their interests.
We believe our clients and their families deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, no matter where they live or work in Louisiana. That is why we work so hard to pursue real results for real families who need real legal help.
Our Baton Rouge wrongful death lawyers know that losing a loved one to negligence is one of the most difficult circumstances our clients can endure. However, what most of our clients do not expect while they are grieving is that they are going to feel the financial losses that accompany their loved one’s death quicker than they could have imagined.
Funeral and burial expenses can be overwhelming from the start, and the loss of an upcoming paycheck he or she would have provided can place our clients in a significantly challenging financial position. We want to help pursue the liable party for your full financial recovery, so you can focus on rebuilding your lives without the stress and worry that accompanies the physical, emotional, and financial losses you will be forced to work through now and going forward.
