Attorney Juan LaFonta graduated from Southern University Law Center in 2000 where he earned his Jurisditial Doctorate. He was also working as a legal researcher in the Louisiana State Senate. Attorney LaFonta began his law career in October 2001.
In the fall of 2001 he had a friend whom had gone through several lawyers and had just decided to terminate her attorney. He assumed control of the legal case and the auto accident settled for $300,000.00 a few months later. Attorney LaFonta opened a small solo practice law firm in 2001 which flourished to become Juan A. LaFonta & Associates, LLC.
His first full trial was rewarded total damages in excess of 1.2 million dollars and since then has represented hundreds of clients in serious personal injury cases involving automobile accidents, 18 wheeler accidents, truck, motorcycle, boat, hit & run, pedestrian, bicycle, body burns, head/brain injuries, wrongful deaths, and medical malpractice.
He opened Juan LaFonta & Associates, LLC in responce to public outcry for proper legal assistance and representation of the community. Clients need to see their lawyers; they must receive the assistance when the emergency occurs. They have to be able to trust the lawyer and the lawyer should be able to relate to the client and try to accommodate them at every turn in the case.
Attorney Juan LaFonta is heavily involved in ongoing committees. He was involved in politics and stepped down from the legislature to focus more on the community, community outreach and work more with kids. While being a Representative for District 96, he still maintained a very successful law firm always putting people first. Always fighting for YOU!
