Effective Insurance Defense Legal Counsel for Southern Louisiana

Lafayette Bad Faith Insurance Defense Lawyer

Insurance Defense Litigation Counsel Throughout Southern Louisiana

In laws regarding bad faith insurance claims, Louisiana restricts claims to very particular types of claims involving denied payment for very specific reasons. Regional and national insurance companies facing policyholder disputes and litigation for practicing in bad faith often find themselves involved in a process that is unlike any other state.

Caffery, Oubre, Campbell & Garrison, L.L.P., is recognized as one of southern Louisiana's most recognized and successful law firms providing legal counsel for insurance companies involved in bad faith insurance disputes and litigation. Generally, we work as co-counsel with the insurance company's in-house counsel, but are also well suited to serve as local lead counsel in cases involving personal injury and comprehensive general liability.

Clear and Responsive Communications, and You Remain In Control

With more than 55 years of insurance defense litigation experience behind us, we know that the most important benefit we can offer insurance companies and corporate clients is reliable, clear and responsive communications. We report regularly and make sure your in-house counsel is kept fully apprised of the legal maneuvering and decisions throughout the case. Most important, you remain empowered to make the final decision regarding resolving your case. We are trained, experienced and skilled mediators and negotiators. We are also tough, successful trial lawyers who have defended insurance companies in court many times, and come out on top.

Our General Service Area

The majority of our litigation is concentrated in the 15th and 16th Judicial District Courts (Lafayette, Vermilion, Acadia, Iberia, St. Mary and St. Martin parishes) and in federal courts of the Western District of Louisiana in Lafayette and Lake Charles. We also have a substantial practice in other judicial districts. For certain of our clients, we handle litigation in areas as far west as Lake Charles and as far east as New Orleans.
