Committed to Excellence
Simon, Peragine, Smith & Redfearn was founded in 1979 by a group of attorneys who shared a vision and philosophy to provide excellent legal representation through a collaborative approach to the practice of law. Today, we attribute our success over the last forty years to our attorneys’ commitment to this basic principle. Working together, our attorneys are recognized as leaders in their areas of practice, locally, regionally, and nationally. Based in New Orleans, we serve clients throughout Louisiana, the Gulf Coast, and beyond.More About The Firm
to our clients
We are dedicated to delivering purposeful, responsive client service. Our collaborative approach to law practice combines our attorneys’ collective knowledge and experience with industry insights and practical advice. Over the years, we have structured our firm to efficiently meet our clients’ needs, and this approach drives positive results while delivering optimal value for our clients.
Client communication is the foundation of our practice. Understanding our clients’ objectives starts with an in-depth understanding of their businesses. We deliver advice and recommendations that are tailored to our clients’ individual legal, financial and practical considerations. Our attorneys maintain continuous contact with our clients to assist them in making informed decisions at all stages of the process.Meet the team
As lawyers, we take our role in society to heart. We believe in the role of the lawyer as “a public citizen having special responsibility for the quality of justice.”Unfortunately, not everyone in our society has equal access to justice. We are committed to doing our part as lawyers, and we allow our communities’ diverse needs to guide our efforts rather than deciding what we think is best for the people and organizations we serve. We provide pro bono legal representation to individuals and organizations within our communities.
We strive to fulfill our role as public citizens by serving our communities within and outside of our professional practice. As leaders of the legal community, we lecture and teach at area universities and law schools and serve in leadership positions in local, state, and national bar and professional organizations. Every year, our lawyers work on-site with organizations including Volunteers of America, Habitat for Humanity, Special Olympics, and Second Harvest Food Bank.
At Simon, Peragine, Smith & Redfearn, serving our communities is not an aspirational goal or a means to another end. Serving our communities is a purpose in itself, and it is a foundational pillar of our firm’s culture. We all need our communities to thrive, and the more we do to help, the deeper connection we forge with the people and places we serve.Learn More
