Who We Are

Law Firm Overview

Our New Orleans Law Firm's History

In 1983, the Womac Law Firm was founded through the hard work and dedication of New Orleans lawyer Edward J. Womac, Jr. Ed founded the firm to stand up for the rights of personal injury victims. Since that time, the firm has grown from one trial attorney to a team of fifteen trial attorneys, with offices in New Orleans, Gretna and Mandeville (By Appointment), Louisiana.

As a homegrown law firm, we hire standout attorneys from Louisiana State University, Tulane University, Loyola University, and Southern University Law Schools who have a passion for defending the rights of accident victims. For 30 years, the Womac Law Firm has employed some of the most determined personal injury attorneys who will fight to get you every dollar you deserve. We are determined. We will fight for you.

When you hire the Womac Law Firm, you don't just get one lawyer. You get the backing of an entire law firm that will fight hard for every dollar you deserve for your medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and your pain and suffering. Since 1983, we've handled over 20,000 personal injury cases, going head to head against big corporations and giant insurance companies. To us, 20,000 is more than just a number. It means we have helped thousands of injured clients get the financial compensation they needed to put their lives back together.

For 30 years, the Womac Law Firm has dedicated itself to becoming one of the elite personal injury New Orleans law firms – with a reputation extending all over Louisiana. Since 1983, the Womac Law Firm has helped clients receive awards ranging from $1,000 to over ONE MILLION DOLLARS.

The Womac Law Firm does NOT represent insurance companies. We never have, and we never will. Instead, we strictly represent the people – not the powerful. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." The New Orleans lawyers at the Womac Law Firm have zero tolerance for corporate or insurance company misconduct.

Mock Jury Courtroom

The Womac Law Firm in New Orleans has recently completed a mock jury courtroom at its Canal Street office. This state-of-the-art facility is yet another feature that sets us apart from other New Orleans law firms. Going to court for the first time can be quite stressful, and testifying in a courtroom for the first time can be overwhelming. Most of our clients have never been in a courtroom. People are naturally afraid of things they have never encountered, so we built a state-of-the-art mock jury courtroom to alleviate some of the stress for our clients. The Womac Law Firm's mock jury courtroom is on site, so our clients can familiarize themselves with the courtroom atmosphere before being called to testify at trial. Simply being familiar with the layout of a courtroom helps our clients relax so they can focus on their testimony without the distraction of being in a completely new and unfamiliar environment.

We want to do the best job possible, and that means our clients must be prepared. The mock jury courtroom is yet another tool in our arsenal that helps our New Orleans law firm’s clients prepare for the experience of a real trial.
