Advice to law firm management: I would like to see us take on more diverse, interesting, and challenging cases that will really push us as a firm and force us to work together as a team.

Pros: Everyone is very friendly and there are always plenty of people available around the clock if you need help. I also found my secretary to be very accommodating and friendly.

Cons: I feel as though we do not take enough risks and our current work flow shows this. Most of our cases tend to be more or less the same and work can feel quite dull at times.

The genesis of the present firm was a partnership formed in 1949 between Mr. Davidson and Mr. Richard Meaux, known as Louisiana's dean of insurance defense lawyers.
