I have owned buildings and been operated business in the historic French Quarter since the 1950’s. Owning historic property and conducting business in a historic district is extremely complex and has only become more complicated in recent years. A number of agencies and entities such as the VCC and others are engaged daily in the work of the historic preservation of our beautiful French Quarter, which means there are many more building, zoning, legal issues, and requirements for doing business here. This type of work is over most lawyers’ heads because it’s more than just knowing the law. This firm knows the law exceptionally well, but they also know the city’s history and its people, which makes them so much more effective. They know how to get things done. They know time is money. In fact, they very recently stepped in and resolved a case within 90 days that had been in litigation for over 2 years. I wish I had pulled them in sooner. They treat me like I am their only client in the world and after 70 years of doing business in the city, that level of service is priceless.
