Richard Arsenault Top Lawyers in Acadiana Award 2022

Attorney Richard Arsenault has been selected to be included in the Top Lawyers in Acadiana 2022, and will be featured in Acadiana Profile magazine. This award is based on a per-review survey answered by all certified lawyers in Acadiana. Votes are cast based on the attorney’s excellence in their field and dedication to their practice area, and Top Lawyers is based solely on one’s standing within their peer group. Nominees are then carefully evaluated for their credentials and leadership in the field of law in Louisiana.

Each year, Acadiana Profile publishes its Top Lawyers list, along with the stories of compelling cases fought by three of the year’s qualifying lawyers. In determining the Top Lawyers of Acadiana we use Professional Research Services, a Detroit-based survey company. The voting for the PRS survey to determine the 2017 top attorneys for Acadiana Profile magazine was open to all licensed attorneys in the Acadiana, Louisiana market area. Each attorney was asked which attorney, other than himself or herself, he or she would recommend in the Acadiana area. Each attorney was allowed to recommend up to three colleagues in each given legal specialty. Once the online nominations were complete, each nominee was carefully evaluated on the basis of the survey results, the legitimacy of their license and their current standing with the State Bar Association of Louisiana. Attorneys who received the highest number of votes in each category are reflected in the list by legal specialty.

Mr. Arsenault has been fighting for the rights of accident injury victims for over 40 years. Learn more about Mr. Richard J. Arsenault below, or, call our law firm now at (318) 561-2500 to speak with an attorney. We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The call and consultation are always free.
