About Jim Lambert – Personal Injury Attorney and Car Accident Attorney

Since graduating from Louisiana State University Law School in 1976, I have practiced civil trial law in south Louisiana. I spent the first two years of my practice in New Orleans, Louisiana. Since that time, my practice has been located in Lafayette, Louisiana, where my law firm is based today. After being raised primarily in Alexandria, Louisiana, I attended Louisiana College and Louisiana State University, receiving a Juris Doctorate degree in 1976. My professional affiliations include being a long-time member of the American Bar Association, the Louisiana State Bar Association, the Louisiana Association for Justice (Board of Governors, 1994-2002), the Louisiana Association of Consumer Advocates, and the American Association for Justice.
I am proud to be nationally certified as a civil trial advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. Two national rating agencies have given me their highest rating for competence and integrity based upon surveys of my fellow lawyers. These are Martindale-Hubbell and the “Super Lawyers” peer survey of Law & Politics Magazine.

An injury lawyer you can trust

In over three decades in Louisiana courtrooms, I have always put my clients first. This is the essence and core of my professional philosophy: Put the client first and everything else will take care of itself. As a Louisiana personal injury lawyer, I believe in a close, personal, and highly professional relationship between one client and one lawyer.

For several years now, I have been practicing in my own firm. At the Jim Lambert Law Firm, each and every client will meet me, have personal contact with me, and will be represented by me in any court or other proceeding. The slogan I like to use in some of my public advertising arises from this professional sense of mission: “When I take your case, I take it personally.”

In my personal life, I have been married since 1978 to Barbara McCoy Lambert, and we are the proud parents of two adult children – Travis and Caroline. We are regular members of and very active at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Lafayette, Louisiana. I have also been involved in a local interdenominational group known as Bridge Ministry of Acadiana. This is a group that uses Christian principles to help revitalize one of the most poverty-stricken neighborhoods in Lafayette. Since 2001, I also have been very actively involved in the Kairos Prison Ministry at Angola State Prison.
