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…

Loyd J Bourgeois familyI 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 a 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'm the author of 9 Mistakes That Can Disable Your Social Security Disability ClaimQuick Guide to Louisiana Accident and Injury Claims, and 16 Sensible Actions to Help You Plan and Prepare for Your Divorce.

I have been recognized by Best Lawyers in America, Best Law Firms in America, ExpertiseAvvo, the American Institute of Legal Counsel, Martindale-Hubbell, New Orleans Magazine, and more.

I coach baseball, soccer, and basketball. I serve on the Board of Directors of the United Way of St. Charles, was formerly the board secretary/treasurer, and am currently the Finance Committee Chairperson.

I am a member of the River Region Chamber of Commerce.

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 Pelicans 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 half shell 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.
