About the Firm
The law firm of Lewis & Caplan, APLC was established in 1979 by partners Pete Lewis and Robert A. Caplan as a full service plaintiff's firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims of wrongful injury or death. For over thirty years, local attorneys have referred accident victims to Lewis & Caplan due to its reputation for high quality work and faithful adherence to professional ethical standards. The high quality of the services provided by the firm is evidenced by the AV preeminent rating (the highest rating by other lawyers for professional excellence in legal ability and ethical standards) received by each of the firm's partners in the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory.
Our firm has secured some of the area's largest verdicts or settlements in claims involving vehicles, premises, medical and nursing home negligence. See some of our results here.
The firm's team of attorneys and its support staff work together to provide efficient and friendly legal services to plaintiffs in personal injury cases. Lewis & Caplan prides itself on being a cutting edge law firm experienced in a wide range of injury and accident litigation practice in State and Federal courts. Three of our lawyers alone have over 90 years of combined litigation experience in automobile and trucking accidents, maritime, Jones Act and Longshore Act claims, premises and workplace liability claims, insurer bad faith claims and medical malpractice claims. The firm's attorneys possess impressive academic credentials, maintain strong ties to the local community, and are all life-long residents of the New Orleans area. The firm has achieved numerous million plus dollar verdicts and settlements and has successfully resolved thousands of injury or death claims.
Due to our strong track record and many years of success, we are accustomed to fighting for the small individual against some of the largest corporations, insurers and manufactures.
Our approach has been to remain a small group of highly experienced lawyers who care deeply about their clients.. We do not advertise. We only handle claims that we believe in, keeping our case load small enough to provide personal service and attention to detail. This allows us to maintain our reputation of tenacity and effectiveness inside and out of court, maximizing each clients' chance of success.
