About Us
Free Case Evaluation

Founded in 1969 by Daniel E. Becnel, Jr., the Becnel Law Firm has provided quality legal services for over 45 years.  The Becnel Law Firm began as a small office servicing the River Parishes, specializing in personal injury cases.  In 1972, Mr. Becnel became the first attorney to win a million dollar verdict in Louisiana for a single individual.  The firm expanded to take on more complex litigation such as the Luling Ferry Disaster, the Eunice train derailment, the American Tobacco Company, and the Vioxx drug case among numerous other mass tort litigations, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts.  Most recently, the Becnel Law Firm has worked to secure compensation for victims of Chinese drywall and the B.P. oil spill.  Even though the firm has expanded to represent clients all over the country in complex litigation, the Becnel Law Firm continues to provide dedicated individual legal services in the spirit with which Mr. Becnel first began this firm in 1969, no matter the size of the case.


Although Mr. Becnel passed away in 2020, his legacy continues with a staff of enthusiastic and committed attorneys and professionals devoted to seeking justice for every client.

Our new dedicated office is located on Airline Highway in Laplace, Louisiana. We also see clients by appointment in Reserve and serve the entire New Orleans & Baton Rouge metro areas.

Juul | E-cigarette
Do you know of a person under 26 that has used JUUL? OR someone over that age that has used JUUL and sustained a physical injury?  Contact us. The AMA recommended JUUL be taken off the market yesterday (9/10/19).

"JUULing" is very dangerous. Dr. Johnathan Winickoff (former chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics Tobacco Consortium) said "JUUL is already a massive public-health disaster and without dramatic action, it's going to get much, much worse."
