Brad Boudreaux is a partner at Schutte Terhoeve practicing 100% in civil litigation.  Brad represents local, regional and national retailers, restaurants, manufacturers, contractors, professionals, insurance companies and their insureds in matters primarily involving personal injury, property damage, and other claimed losses.  He represents clients in a wide variety of civil litigation involving matters including products liability, professional liability, environmental damage, construction defect, arson, unfair trade practices, automobile accidents, premises liability, insurance coverage and extra-contractual “bad faith” insurance claims for penalties and attorney fees.

 

Brad is an experienced litigation attorney who has successfully tried cases in state and federal court, and has obtained favorable opinions for his clients in the courts of appeal and in the Louisiana Supreme Court.  His philosophy is to seek early, cost effective resolution to matters that are best resolved quickly, but to provide a robust defense in matters that must be litigated to final conclusion, including trial and appeal.  He believes in providing excellent service to his clients regardless of the size or complexity of the case, whether an automobile property damage dispute, or a multimillion dollar dispute over catastrophic personal injury or property damage involving complex factual and legal issues.
