Effective Insurance Defense Legal Counsel for Southern Louisiana

Louisiana Insurance Defense Lawyer

At Caffery, Oubre, Campbell & Garrison, L.L.P., we believe that excellence is only achieved by sticking to what you start out to do. Since our founding partners first opened our law firm's doors in New Iberia more than a half-century ago, our attorneys have always focused on litigation, primarily as defense counsel for many of the nation's most important insurance companies, oil and gas businesses, and other corporate entities doing business in southern Louisiana.

We generally work with the in-house legal staff of the corporations we represent to develop a budget. We are also open to alternative fee arrangements and our relatively small size allows for flexibility and immediate responses to alternative fee proposals.

Mediation Is Often a Cost-Effective Solution to Complex Litigation

Senior partner Jerry Oubre is a trained mediator who understands that the most appropriate and cost-effective resolution to a dispute or litigation matter often comes through a reasonable settlement negotiated out of court. Under Mr. Oubre's direction our attorneys are trained, knowledgeable professionals who can help parties find solutions through strategies that include directed negotiations, arbitration and other methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR).
