Curry & Friend is among Louisiana’s fastest-growing law firms for good reason. Our innovative litigation strategies have produced positive outcomes for numerous local and national clients in cases involving medical malpractice and healthcare liability, environmental litigation, and complex toxic tort defense, to name a few. Our success is built on experience, sound judgment and dedicated defense. We consistently and consciously provide clients with direct access to skilled attorneys, a key to successful litigation that larger firms simply cannot supply.
Curry & Friend believes very strongly in our commitment to communication. We maintain regular, direct and straightforward communication with our clients and provide prudent and accurate evaluation, creative and quality representation, and expeditious handling of all matters.
We have adopted firm guidelines to ensure prompt response to client calls, voice mails or emails, and to provide regular status reports to keep our clients apprised of matter developments. We also keep clients informed of critical developments impacting their industries through the use of time-sensitive client alerts and issue-targeted publications.
We regard a strong personal relationship with our clients as a crucial part of an effective legal strategy. We deliver results through teamwork both with our clients and within our firm because we know that building a rapport with our clients is critical to realizing their business goals and personal legal objectives. Making our clients an integral part of the legal team also adds value to service. Listening to our clients enables us to anticipate problems and work more productively to meet their needs. Our commitment to service is reflected in our long-standing relationships with many of our clients.
We share with our clients a desire to control costs while providing the highest possible legal representation. When appropriate, nurse consultants or paralegals are integrated into a matter to allow lower billing rates for certain types of services. Methods of alternative dispute resolution are also pursued in order to reduce litigation expenses.
Our firm has a state-of-the-art computer network employing the latest software and hardware. We have the capability of configuring alternative means of access to engage in direct electronic communications for reporting and billing purposes with our partnering clients, including paperless handling of matters if desired. When appropriate, our legal team is well-versed in and utilizes litigation software to manage effectively multiple party and/or multiple document matters. We upgrade our software as needed to keep pace with our clients’ needs and expectations, and to ensure that we handle our clients’ matters efficiently, effectively and economically, maximizing our productivity.
