Louisiana Local Counsel of Record for Mesothelioma Cases

Mesothelioma cases in Louisiana can be complicated because it is the only jurisdiction in the United States that still follow the Civil Napoleonic Code. As such, there are many terms and legal distinctions that out-of-state attorneys may not be familiar with. This civil code of law is extraordinarily unique, and it is applied to asbestos cases in very different ways.

In addition, the Louisiana Supreme Court has set forth that only the law that was in effect at the time the victims were exposed to asbestos be applied to asbestos cases in the state. As such, it is recommended that out-of-state firms that wish to file a mesothelioma case in Louisiana should retain local co-counsel.
