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. We understand that selecting a personal injury lawyer in the Metairie, LA/New Orleans area is an important and difficult decision for you to make. At Nowalsky & Gothard, APLLC, we have made the decision not to advertise on television, not to make up a slogan or nickname, and not to try to represent as many people as possible for every type of claim. New clients are typically referred by word of mouth from current satisfied clients, which is how we think it should be.

Our mission is to provide quality legal representation to our clients through the ethical practice of law. We strive to treat our clients, and all whom we encounter, with dignity, respect and equality. We provide individualized attention to every client, because we believe that communication with every client is necessary to properly represent them, and to achieve the maximum possible recovery.

Leon Nowalsky, founding partner, has practiced Telecommunications Regulatory and Corporate Law for 30 years. His expertise includes all aspects of Telecommunications Regulatory Law, as well as the evolving business models in this dynamic industry. Mr. Nowalsky's sophisticated understanding of innovative technology, combined with in-depth practical telecommunications industry experience, allows our law firm to provide individualized and effective representation to clients in all 50 states, including before the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

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!
