Louisiana is a proud southern state that has long been governed by tradition and honor. Louisiana is the only jurisdiction in the United States that still follows the Civil Napoleonic Code. There are many legal nuances and terms that can be confusing and are often foreign to attorneys/firms who have never practiced in our state. It is highly suggested for out-of-state firms to retain co-counsel for cases they are anticipating to be filed in Louisiana.
The Cheek Law Firm, LLC offers local counsel assistance to out-of-state firms/lawyers who are seeking competent Louisiana co-counsel representation for asbestos-related and personal injury cases. Lindsey Cheek and Jeanne Arceneaux have been practicing almost exclusively in the State of Louisiana for several years and are well-versed in the relevant L.A.C.C.P. statutes, as well as the procedural rules of court for various parishes in and around Louisiana.
We offer a range of local counsel assistance, including:
- 100% hands-on, start-to-finish assistance
- Trial Counsel assistance
- Advisory/Counseling assistance
Please contact us today to discuss the specific needs of your client/case and how we may be of assistance.
