The main focus of Jean’s practice has always lied in earning results for clients in a wide variety of simple and complex litigation matters, specifically those arising out of transportation accidents and other personal injury issues, as well as those dealing with homeowner coverage and bad faith questions. Jean has also gained vast experience performing corporate and transactional functions for an array of clients including individuals, large cities and municipalities, and multi-million dollar corporations. He has also argued before Courts of Appeal and the Louisiana Supreme Court.

Jean is a member of both the Louisiana and Georgia State Bar Associations and is admitted to practice in many state and federal courts in these jurisdictions.
