“I enthusiastically recommend the firm of Scandurro & Layrisson to anyone in need of legal services. We interviewed multiple attorneys to help us with a business partnership buyout, and once engaged, we never doubted that we made the right choice. They took the time to listen and understand, they were straightforward, and they had a sharp eye for detail.”


Property Insurance Claim Consultant

“My problem involved a complex issue of Louisiana law, and we needed help on a short string. They listened, grasped the situation very quickly, worked with me over the weekend, and by Monday morning we had a plan and a strategy and we saw it through."

Wendell F.

Personal Injury Client

“I was hurt bad and went through a lot.  Scandurro & Layrisson did a great job but the  best part was they made me feel cared for.    My case is over now, but they always have time for me and treat me like family to this day.  I will never forget what they did for me.”
