If you’ve suffered an accident or injury that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation. A mediocre Personal Injury lawyer will assess your case and advise you on what level of compensation you could get. An outstanding Personal Injury lawyer will assess your case, advise you on what level of compensation you could get, and then go out and get it. If you want to give yourself the best chances of success, put your business in the hands of a lawyer who’ll fight for your interests at a every step of the way… a lawyer like one of these New Orleans lawyers. Without further delay, here’s our ranking of the ‘10 Best Personal Injury Lawyers in New Orleans’.

5. Justin Chopin
Justin Chopin may not have the multiple decades of experince some of his peers have, but in the 12 years he’s been practicing law, he’s developed into one of New Orleans’ finest advocates – something that’s more than evidenced by the extensive number of titles and awards to his name, including the rating of AV Preeminent (the highest possible rating for ethical standards and legal ability) through Martindale Hubbell, the rank of Louisiana Super Lawyer in 2020, Rising Star in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019; and the status of New Orleans Magazine’s Top Attorney in the fields of Admiralty/Maritime and Commercial Litigation in 2012, Commercial Litigation in 2013 and 2014, and Creditors Rights in 2014; Personal Injury in 2017 and 2019.
4. Stephen David Hebert
If a 10.0 score on Avvo.com wasn’t impressive enough, some of the feedback left for Stephen David Hebert by his clients should be more than enough to convince you of his merits. “Mr. Hebert did a fantastic job with my case. He is a great lawyer. Very detailed, great communication, and extremely professional. I don’t live in the state of Louisiana so he was able to represent me in the case. This was a major assistance to me in that I didn’t have to take off of work and make the trip. Every decision that was made towards my case Mr. Hebert contacted me, we discussed it, and proceeded forward. Thank you,” says one, with another adding the very praise-worthy, “I hired Mr. Hebert almost two years ago. My case got lost in court and re-appeared over a year after. Not only did he handled my case with great care but was always a phone or text away throughout all these years. He got my case dismissed even with me being out of state at the time. I most definitely recommend Mr. Hebert.”
3. Trey Woods
Super Lawyers ranks Trey Woods as a “Top Rated Personal Injury Attorney in New Orleans, LA”. With his two year status as a Louisiana Rising Star, his extensive experience as a lead counsel on numerous complex trials involving personal injury claims, his history of securing millions of dollars in settlements and awards for his clients, and his numerous awards and honors for professionalism and service (including the New Lawyer Division of Excellence Award from the American Association for Justice in 2012-2013), it’s not hard to see why.
2. Stewart J Guss Esq.
Stewart J Guss Esq. has over 2 decades in Personal Injury law under his belt, and the experince shows. As US News rightly notes, his reputation for tenacity, dedication, and ruthless efficiency has seen National Association of Distinguished Counsel rank him as one of the top one percent of personal injury attorneys in the country in 2015, not to mention earn him recognition by National Trial Lawyers as one of the top 100 trial lawyers in the nation in 2016 and as one of the “Best Attorneys in America” by Rue Ratings since 2015.
1. Stephen S. Kreller
As the founder of The Kreller Law Firm, Stephen S. Kreller’s reputation proceeds him.
