“This firm was like family to me through it all. This was one of the worst times of my life, and I never worried about how it was going to turn out because I knew they were working from their hearts.
They recovered a confidential settlement for me that has helped me navigate through tough times and has secured my future. Jason Williams + Associates is unlike any law firm and I would recommend them to anyone who is suffering a serious burn injury.”
– Wendell Fisher, Workplace Burn Survivor

While our legal offices are located in New Orleans, Louisiana, we accept cases from any parish in Louisiana. The broadening use of technology in courtrooms since the pandemic has allowed us to efficiently serve you from any location. We also travel for in-person hearings and other litigation matters. If you have a question about whether we can handle your civil case, please give us a call for a free consultation.
Like other Louisiana personal injury attorneys, we work on a contingency fee basis. This means you do not come out of pocket for any expenses and you do not owe us anything if we are not successful in your case. If we are successful in obtaining an award in your personal injury case, the percentage we charge is based upon the amount of work we do in your case. For cases that settle before a lawsuit is filed, we charge 33%. If we have to file a lawsuit in your case, we charge 40%. If we have to go to trial or an appeal is necessary, we charge 45%. This is the standard amount for attorney’s fees that you will see charged across the state. However, no matter what stage your case is in, we have a firm policy that we never take more in an attorney’s fee than our clients receive. That means if it works out where we are getting more, we will reduce our fee no matter what stage or the amount of work we have done in your case. Also, if an insurance company has already offered you a settlement, we will not take an attorney’s fee on the amount previously offered to you. At the end of each case, we always provide a breakdown of all charges and expenses in a settlement statement.
If you have a question about our legal fees or how much we charge in personal injury cases, please give us a call. We can show you an example of a settlement statement so you can see for yourself an example of how charges are incurred in a personal injury case. We are also happy to show you an example contract which you can review. Our goal is to be as transparent as possible with our clients so you are clear and have all questions answered.
Yes. In addition to personal injury claims, we handle a variety of other civil cases such as property and land use, lobbying and governmental relations, and even civil defense claims. The fees we charge for handling these civil cases depend upon the team members who will be assigned to your case and the type of work requested. Please contact us for further information including potential retainer charges and hourly fees.
