Hello! I am a full-time middle-management business person by day and do freelance projects on the side for fun and profit. I am also a bit of a worry-wart when it comes to my personal business matters as well as my personal legal matters. I'd like to find a Louisiana-based attorney that can assist me in a wide variety of legal matters as they come up, from contract drafting and review (I draft contracts as part of my day job but always have my inside counsel review before finalizing - I'd like the same for my freelancing work outside of my day job) to advice on legal matters, to sending letters on my behalf in legally troublesome matters, to review and advice of legal matters that may come up and could involve litigation.
Currently, I have a case that was brought against me and my insurance company last year for an automobile accident where I believe I was not at fault, yet the other injured party does. The case is being handled by one of these tv-ad law firms and it is moving at a snail's pace. What I do not like is that the insurance firm owns the law firm my case was assigned to and, though competent, I would like my own attorney's review and advice on the matter, especially since the words "excess judgment" have been thrown around by my insurance company. While I do not have any feeling that the insurance company has acted in bad faith yet, they have advised me many times that they will only do "what they can" for me and I'm "welcome" to consult my own counsel. I'd love to be able to speak to an attorney about this matter and get advice on the best way to proceed.
For both personal and "side business" matters, I'd love to have one attorney I could always turn to that would be able to help me out and that could advise me when I need it. I'm used to working with my inside counsel on a daily basis and prefer to work with them via email as they prefer to see documents, etc. that they can work on and respond to, but we also conference via phone as necessary.
If you are interested in being my go-to attorney, I'd love to hear from you!
