Herman Herman Katz

Your Louisiana Personal Injury Law Firm

Herman Herman Katz fights to get our clients the results they deserve, and we’ve been advocating for victims for over 80 years. Our Louisiana law firm handles cases involving personal injury, sex abuse, product liability, natural disasters, mass torts, and more. We’ve won more than $35 billion for our clients since our founding in 1942. Some notable verdicts that we’ve achieved include $9 billion awarded after the BP oil spill, $47 million after an offshore accident, and $85 million after an industrial explosion. We handle class action lawsuits with thousands of members and complex mass tort cases. We also represent individuals who have been wronged and are the only plaintiffs. No case is too big or too small.

Choosing a lawyer is an overwhelming task, and it can be hard to make the best decision. It’s essential to find a law firm with a good track record. What sets us apart from other lawyers? Our firm was founded by two brothers, and family is still of utmost importance to us. HHK’s lawyers have decades of experience, including extensive time spent in the courtroom. We know how to handle unscrupulous insurance companies and corporations that try to dodge accountability. We use our knowledge to do everything we can to get you a fair settlement. If a case goes to trial, we’ll fight for you there, too.

Additionally, the community is at the forefront of everything we do at HHK. Our attorneys and their families live here; many have weathered natural disasters like Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Ida. The issues that affect you affect us, too. Giving back matters to us, which is why we donate our time and money to charities that make the world a better place. Some nonprofit organizations we support include St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, United Way of Southeast Louisiana, the Jewish Community Center of New Orleans, and the Louisiana Wildlife Federation. Additionally, our attorneys have received numerous awards for professionalism and legal skill, including U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms,” Best Lawyers in America, and National Trial Lawyers Top 100.
