Firm Details

Herman, Herman, Katz & Cotlar, L.L.P. originally opened its doors in 1942 as Herman & Herman and quickly earned a reputation in the New Orleans community for promoting the rights of all citizens.

Over the past 60 years, our cases have become more diverse and sophisticated, yet we continue to advocate for the good of the public, whether we are representing a single plaintiff or thousands of people in a class action. Our expertise allows us to skillfully represent each of our clients and, in many instances, affords us the opportunity to create precedent that changes the face of the law. We believe that each case we litigate has the potential to open the door to a new avenue of justice.

Since 1942, Herman, Herman, Katz & Cotlar, L.L.P. has maintained a family-oriented atmosphere and has dedicated itself to providing the best legal representation and counseling to our clients. We continue to strive for creative approaches to litigation and to seek solutions that will be long-lasting and beneficial to the community. We intend to maintain the high quality of our work team, the excellence and value of the legal services we provide, and the commitment to promoting the good of the public, which, since the firm's incarnation, has been our cornerstone.
