Smith & Fawer was originally founded on January 2, 1995 to concentrate on complex litigation matters in diverse areas of law. Now, over twenty years later, Smith & Fawer has established itself as a successful litigation boutique firm with an office in downtown New Orleans. The firm presses an active trial and appellate caseload into the federal and state courts locally, regionally and nationally.
The attorneys at Smith & Fawer bring significant experience and substantial aggression to the resolution of their clients’ problems. The attorneys at Smith & Fawer have extensive experience in commercial litigation, property and insurance litigation, eminent domain litigation and white collar criminal defense law. The firm has brought together a group of talented, creative and intellectual counsel who complement their experience in these areas. The firm is known for not being afraid to take cases to trial, and thus its opponents know they are in for a fight when going against them.
The firm’s commitment to excellence and its zealousness in the representation of its clients have led those it represents to seek it out continually and to recommend it to others when they have problems they cannot solve. Within all legal and ethical bounds, the firm "holds nothing back" in representing its clients’ interests.
