Trust a Successful Personal Injury Law Firm

Because of the severity of a serious injury, when you retain an attorney, you should expect experience, knowledge and an uncompromising commitment to you and your case. This is what we always strive to offer.

Preparation, Thoroughness, Teamwork, Dedication: Richard R. Kennedy

For nearly half a century, we have been aggressive but professional advocates in the courtroom for the rights of our clients who are facing personal injury, wrongful death, Jones Act and maritime, and business litigation. We know that litigation is stressful for our clients and requires our total dedication and availability. It is this approach that allows us to prepare each and every case for trial and to provide each client with the attention he or she needs. We know that to arrive at an ideal resolution, we need to completely understand our clients.

Louisiana Maritime Lawyers

We believe clients must take an active role in their case and must have access to our legal team. Because we act on the assumption that the case will go to trial, we vigorously investigate and prosecute the case. When appropriate, and only with our client's consent, we explore settlement possibilities either through direct negotiation or through mediation.

We only handle cases involving the seriously injured and their families and know that all cases (and ultimate decisions) belong to our clients. Therefore, we urge our clients to become actively involved and help them gain a fundamental knowledge of the laws pertaining to the case. Over the years, this has proven vital to our success. We pledge unsurpassed dedication to every client and always provide:

  • A copy of everything we send and receive relating to your case
  • An open line of communication with our legal team, including at nights, on weekends and on holidays
  • Full discussion, review and explanation of all pleadings, discovery and briefs before filing them

Richard Kennedy III brings commitment and compassion to his clients. Richard guided me along the way while keeping my best interest in mind.

Preparation Is Key to Success

We will never sell you short to avoid taking your case to trial. When we take on a case, we always ensure that we are more prepared than our opponents. It is this approach that has the unique effect of saving us from litigation most of the time — our opponents realize early on how serious we are and are more often than not willing to settle for fair compensation.

In every case, we work exclusively on contingency and never collect fees until we are able to collect compensation for clients.
