Serving Lafayette and Louisiana Since 1983

The Hightower Law Firm in Lafayette has provided effective, experienced and cost-effective legal help to southern and central Louisiana for over 25 years. Our primary practice areas include:

  • Personal Injury. We handle all types of personal injury matters, and offer a free consultation to discuss   your case.

  • On and Offshore/Maritime Accidents, including accidents occurring on oil rigs, oil platforms, ships, barges, jack up rigs, semi-submersible vessels and drill ships.

  • Car Accident Injuries. We work with accident reconstructionists, medical professionals, economists, vocational rehabilitation experts and others to prepare your case for negotiations and trial.

  • 18-Wheeler/Trucking Accidents, and accidents involving commercial vehicles, tractor trailers, semi trucks and delivery vehicles.

  • Wrongful Death, including accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, dangerous property, on/offshore/maritime accident and workplace accidents.

  • Insurance Defense. We work with insurance companies to fight unreasonable claims involving homeowner's insurance, auto insurance, uninsured/underinsured claims, medical malpractice claims, defective products and subrogation issues.

  • Products Liability Defense. We have defended dozens of companies and insurers against claims involving a range of products, including bikes, bike helmets, medical devices, valves, auto products and home products.

  • Insurance Bad Faith. We can help when your insurance company acts too slowly, denies your claim or disputes coverage.

  • Railroad Accidents. Due to the often severe nature of the injuries caused by railroad accidents, sophisticated legal representation is needed to best position your case for trial or settlement negotiations.

  • Criminal Defense, including defense of drug crimes, theft, burglary, murder, assault, DUI/DWI, environmental crimes, traffic violations, domestic violence, white collar crimes, computer-related crimes and gaming violations.
