Because we are a small firm in Metairie, LA (right outside of New Orleans), operating in a small market, we are able to provide the highest quality services with fees much lower than large firms are able to offer.

Mr. Gothard was personable, professional, organized, confident, and reassuring as he handled my case after my car was wiped off the road by another driver, who then presumed innocence! I would certainly recommend him and encourage others to get Mr. Gothard on your case as soon as possible, as he was extremely helpful in guiding me through all sorts of issues to consider in the immediate aftermath of my accident. It was so reassuring to know that Mr. Gothard was in my corner.

Eddie Gothard is the only attorney I will ever use. He has handled two cases for me, both with great care, and great results. Eddie handled my cases like he was representing his own family, showing true concern, putting forth the extra effort, and always giving me the right council.

Eddie handled my cases seriously but has a great personality and makes these difficult circumstances manageable. Eddie makes you feel at ease, knowing you are in very trustworthy and capable hands.

I highly recommend Eddie to my friends and family, and he is always my first call when I have any legal questions!

Eddie, thanks for all of your hard work!
