Attorney Juan LaFonta graduated from Southern University Law Center in 2000 where he earned his Juris Doctorate degree, while also working as a legal researcher in the Louisiana State Senate. Attorney LaFonta began his legal career in October 2001.
In the fall of 2001, he had a friend who 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 $3.000,000 a few months later. Attorney LaFonta opened a small solo practice law firm in 2001, which quickly flourished into Juan A. LaFonta & Associates LLC.
His first full trial awarded total damages in excess of 1.2 million dollars. Since then, he has represented hundreds of clients in serious personal injury cases involving automobile accidents, 18 wheeler accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, boating accidents, hit and run injuries, pedestrian injuries, bicycle accidents, burn injuries, head/brain injuries, wrongful deaths, and medical malpractice cases.
He opened Juan LaFonta & Associates, LLC in response to public outcry for proper legal assistance and representation in 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, as he is committed to community outreach and working with the youth. While being a Representative for District 96, he maintained a very successful law firm by always putting people first. He is ALWAYS FIGHTING for YOU!
