Our firm was founded in 1979 by a small group of talented attorneys committed to providing efficient quality legal services. The founding members shared a vision to build a firm committed to a high standard of professionalism. Our philosophy is simple: We strive for excellence every day in every matter we handle. Our devotion to our clients is unwavering; and, regardless of the stakes or the challenges that lie ahead, we uphold our professional and moral obligation to zealously protect our clients’ interests.
With a collaborative approach to the practice of law, we have built one of Louisiana’s preeminent law firms, representing industry-leading clients throughout Louisiana and the Gulf Coast region. While our firm has grown and evolved over the past 40 years, our guiding principle has remained the same: To effectively serve our clients locally, regionally and nationally while remaining at the forefront of our areas of practice. We also firmly believe in the importance of efficiency and communication. Everything we do has a purpose, and each of our clients is an integral member of its own legal team. While we serve our clients, we also view them as our partners. We align our interests with our clients’, and we work closely with them to achieve successful results quickly, cost-effectively and decisively.
As leaders of the legal community, many of our attorneys lecture and teach at area universities and law schools and are involved in various leadership positions in organized local, state, and national bar and professional organizations, including a past president of the American Bar Association and a past president of the Louisiana State Bar Association. We also honor our profession’s commitment to pro bono and support our lawyers work providing pro bono legal services to the underserved and non-profits.
In addition to our commitment to our clients and our communities, we are also firmly committed to the principles of diversity and inclusion. This is reflected in who we are, what we do and how we operate as one of Louisiana’s leading law firms. Our attorneys and legal professionals come from diverse backgrounds, and we embrace all of our summer associates, attorneys, staff members, clients and strategic partners equally without consideration of their race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, or other personal characteristics or classifications.
At Simon Peragine, our mission is to serve our clients and our communities consistent with our values and professional responsibilities. We look forward to our next 40 years of practice in Louisiana and beyond.
