Aaron Broussard

I’ve been lucky. I’ve had the opportunity to learn from some of the best lawyers in the country. I was blessed with great partners that I still learn from every day. My dad- a real country trial lawyer– taught me to fight and my mom taught me to care. My wife and kids have taught me more than anyone. I’ve tried just over 30 cases in ten years and had more than 20 articles published. I have won cases I should have lost and lost cases I should have won. With the help of courageous clients and juries, I was lucky enough to get a few good verdicts and even change the law in Louisiana once or twice. Most of the success and the ideas I’ve had were the results of being inspired by those who are clearly better than me and I will never forget that.
