New Orleans Disability Attorney Loyd Bourgeois

Growing up, I had the typical south-Louisiana experience.  I learned to swim before I could walk when I was thrown from the boat while fishing down in Lafitte (I don’t know anyone who didn’t learn to swim that way).  I used to know French may che.  I raised alligators taken from the nest after wrestling mom for fun.  And I used to have this great Cajun accent when I was the waterboy for the school’s football team.

My name is Loyd Bourgeois.  And while that is not exactly my life story, it’s close.  Okay.  Maybe not.  But this is…

I am a native-Louisianian, growing up in a small town in St. Charles Parish named Bayou Gauche.  I am a Catholic family man with three beautiful children and a loving wife.  I have an engineering degree from LSU and graduated cum laude from Tulane Law School. I am member of: the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR), the National Association of Disability Representatives (NADR), the Louisiana State Bar Association, and the St. Charles Parish Bar Association. I am also the secretary of the Solo and Small Firms Section of the Louisiana State Bar Association and a notary public. I coach T-ball, soccer, and basketball. I serve as the secretary/treasurer of the Board of Directors of the United Way of St. Charles and am the Finance Committee Chairperson.

I love Louisiana despite its faults and am proud to be a part of New Orleans recovery.  I am a Tiger die-hard, a Saints believer, and a Hornets fan.

I prefer fish to steak and love spending time on the water.  I know that boiling shrimp is an art, much more so than boiling crawfish or crabs.  I love a good gumbo (which I know tastes better the day after it was cooked).  I have really eaten nutria.  I like my Redfish grilled on the halfshell and know that flounder are the best eating fish around these parts, except for Sac-a-lait.

I prefer Abita beer, Miller Lite, and Crown & 7, but enjoy a good wine, too. A great margarita is never frozen…A great snowball is.

I am Louisiana.
