“A lawyer who tries to represent everyone cannot truly represent anyone.”
Aaron is very selective about what cases he handles. Being selective allows Aaron to dedicate more time to each client and get better results in a shorter time. Aaron strives to provide great representation to good people.
Aaron tried his first jury trial when he was 26 and has not stopped. Aaron has personally obtained over 38 million dollars in jury verdicts and settlements. He has obtained jury verdicts in a variety of cases, including maritime, product liability, highway defect, trucking, premise liability, and cases against law enforcement.
Aaron gets to know clients on a personal level and never gives up. His clients very rarely call to see how their case is going because they already know. Aaron keeps his clients informed and up-to-date.
Aaron enjoys working on difficult cases and coming up with new ways to win. Aaron is often hired by other attorneys to work on cases and is willing to travel any distance.

What Aaron’s clients have to say:
“Aaron accepted my case, which wasn’t a big dollar type of case. He put his heart and soul into my case. Because of a bad ruling, we lost at trial, but he moved forward to appeal and we won a unanimous verdict from the appeals judges. Defense sent it to the state supreme court and their writ was denied. Because of Aaron’s tenacity and determination we are now victorious. Aaron and his team made positive change for Louisiana law regarding preserving evidence of an accident in a casino hotel. Thank you Aaron!!”
“Broussard and Hart Law Firm was nothing but fabulous when we needed help! Everyone on the staff always treated us with the utmost courtesy and professionalism. It was a long, difficult time for us, but they were always very supportive and truly cared about our well-being. Throughout the entire ordeal, we were constantly aware of every step in the process.

If you have a serious case and you hire a lawyer who is handling a hundred files or more, how can he or she possibly have the time to give personal attention to your file? Serious cases require a lot of work and a lot of time. Corporations and insurance companies do not defend minor cases the same way they defend serious cases. They are going to make you earn it and they have the resources to run attorneys in circles. If an attorney takes too many cases, they will not be able to keep up and the defendant will be successful in delaying your case.
