Ascension Parish Lawyer

If you have been injured in an accident, whether it involves automobiles, boats, offshore rigs, or an 18 wheeler, you deserve diligent and serious legal representation. You deserve an attorney who understands the individual needs of each client and who will take the time to personally handle your case. At the Tureau Law Firm, we know that when you are injured by the negligence of another driver, it is not only you that suffers. Your family may suffer as well. You may have had to miss work because of your injuries, or you may now be unable to do things in your daily life that you could do before the accident. You have the right to be fairly compensated for these losses and any other suffering inflicted upon you. You may be entitled to damages as a result of past pain and suffering, future pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, loss of consortium, past medical bills, future medical bills, lost wages, future lost wages, and loss of enjoyment of life.

The insurance company may contact you soon after the crash and offer to settle. This amount is probably far less than the compensation you deserve. Steven Tureau knows how to fight for you. He knows that justice is only served by getting a client the dollar amount that they deserve. If the insurance company agrees to fairly compensate a client prior to trial, then an out of court settlement can be reached. But when the corporate insurance companies fail to offer just compensation to an injured victim, the Tureau Law Firm stands ready for trial.

A divorce can take a toll on a family. The children and the parties have to adapt to new living arrangements and new routines, not to mention custody arrangements, child support, spousal support, and use of community property. These are all things that have to be taken into consideration when someone goes through a divorce. At the initial consultation, we can tell you what the child support and spousal support figures should be, give you an idea on what child custody arrangement may be ordered by the judge, and tell you what your options are for the community property settlement. All you need to bring is a recent paycheck stub for both you and your spouse and a list of all assets and debts you and your spouse have.

If you have been served with a Petition for Divorce, you should consult with an attorney immediately. An answer to the Petition should be filed within 15 days from the date you were served. Certain provisions have to be included in your answer for you to be entitled to claim them at a later date. If not plead in your answer, you may lose the right to a claim for reimbursement at a later date, which is like leaving money on the table.
