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 litigation and trial counsel assistance for certain out-of-state firms and lawyers who are seeking competent Louisiana lawyers with well-known trial acumen. The attorneys with The Cheek Law Firm, LLC have had successful jury trial verdicts and have successfully obtained verdicts in various asbestos-related cases – including during the global pandemic. We also have extensive experience in defective product liability, along with premises and employer liability, FELA, and maritime matters.
Founding attorney, Lindsey Cheek has been practicing exclusively in the State of Louisiana for almost 10 years and is very well-versed in the L.A.C.C.P. She and associate, Jeanne Arceneaux, keep up-to-date with the law by reading every relevant appellate and Supreme Court's respective orders, even if they don't involve CLF's cases. The attorneys with CLF are also equipped with the knowledge regarding the specific procedural rules of court for various parishes throughout Louisiana.
