Pursuing child support from someone who is unemployed might seem like a fruitless endeavor. However, in Louisiana, a parent's unemployment doesn't necessarily release that parent from their child support obligations.Read More

When we watch the commercials on television, it can seem so simplified: “I got in a wreck and I got a big check!” Most of us know that it’s not that clear-cut, and if it were, we’d all be walking around loaded with car accident money. If you do find yourself injured (either in a car accident or in everyday life), how do you know if you're owed money? If you are getting money, how do you know if it's as much as you should be getting?Read More

It’s been said that the most fun things are sometimes the riskiest, and the biggest party in Louisiana is no different. In New Orleans, we dance, we dress up, we have our parade punch and frolic all around the city. And sometimes, we get hurt.Read More

We are thrilled to announce that Jon Bethune has received his first award for 2017!
SUPER LAWYERS is a peer-based award that is chosen based on a very rigorous, multi-phase process. Eligible attorneys cannot campaign or nominate themselves. Attorneys are discovered through nomination by their peers or through an independent research team. The nominated attorneys are then evaluated based on 12 points of their standing, including standing with The Bar Association, client reviews and ratings, and existing results (click here to read more about the 12-point process).
Less than 5 percent of attorneys in Louisiana receive this award, and Jon's selection as "Rising Star" is less than 2.5 percent of all eligible attorneys in Louisiana. This illustrious award is highly valued as it is not an award that is qualified on paid advertisements, but instead rooted in respect and esteem in the attorney's community.
