Jeffrey D. Guerriero THE INJURY ATTORNEY
Jeff is proud to be a part of the legal profession and to carry on a family tradition. The law firm of Guerriero and Guerriero is one of the oldest and most prestigious law firms in North Louisiana. It was established by Jeff’s grandfather, Joseph S. Guerriero, over 80 years ago. Jeff’s father, Joe D. Guerriero, followed in his father’s footsteps. And now, with over 20 years of litigation experience, Jeff continues this legacy of aggressive and effective legal representation. The law firm of Guerriero and Guerriero is known throughout Louisiana for their tenacious representation of clients and for their superior courtroom skills. The firm’s areas of practice focus on personal injury, motor vehicle accidents, railroad accidents, wrongful death, oilfield accidents, nursing home negligence defective products, class actions, and medical malpractice. Jeff has represented thousands of clients and has collected millions of dollars in case settlements and jury verdicts. In fact, he has earned the nickname “THE INJURY ATTORNEY”.
Despite the formidable look on his billboard ads and his reputation as an aggressive trial attorney, Jeff is very approachable and friendly. He genuinely cares about, and takes a personal interest in, his clients and their families. Jeff personally meets with every client and works on their cases. He often spends countless hours outside of the office visiting hospitalized clients and their families to comfort and support them emotionally. Jeff takes client representation to a whole new level. Once you are a client of Jeff’s, you become a part of his extended family.
Jeff also devotes a considerable amount of time to helping individuals who cannot afford effective legal representation. He was voted Pro Bono Lawyer of the Year for providing free legal assistance to the elderly; however, that represents only a small part of the volunteer services Jeff provides on an annual basis.
