Getting to Our New Orleans Office
Our New Orleans office is located in the 14th floor of the skyscraper (formerly known as the Gulf Building) across from the Superdome on Poydras Street. We’re in the Central Business District southwest of the French Quarter about a dozen blocks west of the Mississippi River.
Parking can be tricky, so call ahead so that we can help advise you about parking and directions to our office from your location. We have covered garage parking and can validate your parking, but sometimes spaces fill up fast because of our proximity to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome if an event is going on there.
Local Transportation Options
Getting to and from our New Orleans office is pretty easy because of our city’s public transportation system, plentiful taxi cabs, and abundance of Uber and Lyft drivers. The closest railcar station, Poydras Street Station, is only a block from our office at Loyola Avenue and Poydras Street. The New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (NORTA) system is comprised of a network of railcars and buses, transporting people around the city all day and night.

Notable Mesothelioma Lawsuit Settlements In Louisiana and New Orleans
ABRAM V. EPEC OIL CO., 2005-0626 (LA.APP. 4 CIR. 6/28/06)
In 2000, the Abram family filed a lawsuit in St. Bernard Parish seeking an injury claim for his mesothelioma diagnosis following decades of employment at Tenneco Oil Company. Later the lawsuit was amended to include a wrongful death claim and appoint his wife and children as heirs and recipients of any financial settlements post-mortem.
Mr. Abram, the plaintiff, was exposed to asbestos during his time as an employee of Tenneco (Bought by Mobil Oil in 1988) where he worked on the production line manufacturing roofing tiles. The Abram family was awarded $2,500,000 by the court. The defendant (EPEC Oil) fought to have the settlement verdict appealed but our legal team won the appeal as well.
